PM says opposition remains too critical

PRIME Minister Hun Sen Wednesday again blasted the opposition over their criticism of government activities, saying whether the government is right or wrong, they always criticise.

Responding to opposition comments that the ruling Cambodian People's Party leaders (CPP) have the "same faces", Hun Sen said: "The same opposition has opposed us since the beginning .... We do right or wrong, they always oppose."

Chea Vannath, an independent political analyst, said that in a democratic system if there were no criticism it would not be good governance, as the government would then judge what is right or wrong itself.
