Lim wins in Aust vote

Cambodian Hong Lim has won a vote to represent the Australian Labor Party in

Victorian state polls.

Lim, 43, beat the sitting MP Dr Gerard Vaughan to

win the nomination for the Clayton constituency in the polls, scheduled for

1996.

He said: "To be chosen as its [ALP's] candidate is both a privelege

and a heavy responsibility. I hope I will be equal to that task."

Lim

lives in the Victorian town of South Oakleigh with his wife Bopha and two sons.

He has lived in Australia since emigrating from Cambodia in 1970.
