Pick expected today for anti-graft body

The National Assembly is scheduled to appoint a member to the new National Anticorruption Council today, senior Cambodian People’s Party lawmaker Cheam Yeap said Monday.

Lawmakers will have six candidates to choose from.

The council was created as part of the long-awaited anti-graft law passed in March.

Other institutions, including the Senate, are expected to appoint people to fill a total of 11 spots on the council, which will oversee the government’s anticorruption strategy.
