Sports chief Sethycheat rises to minister post

Ouk Sethycheat has replaced Lak Sam Art as Education, Youth, and Sport Minister, with the outgoing official taking early retirement.

Sethycheat was promoted from his position of President of the National Training Centre, with his vice-president Pon Sok also moving up to the role of deputy minister.

The new minister is to assume control of four departments, including the Physical Education for Students, National Student Affairs, National Sport Training and National Physical Education and Sport.

In his acceptance speech, Sethycheat promised to develop the Olympic Stadium for future domestic and international matches as well as planning to standardise the training of sports coaches.
