Thong Khon is re-elected

TOURISM Minister Thong Khon was re-elected as president of the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia (NOCC) for its fifth mandate at a conference held at Phnom Penh's Naga World Hotel Wednesday morning.

Officials from 16 National Sports Federations voted unanimously to allow Thong Khon to resume his presidency from 2009 to 2012 and also voted him president of the executive committee.

Thong Khon said during his address that the conference was arranged in accordance with Asian and International Olympic Committee mandates to evaluate the work done by the NOCC over the previous three-year term.

The minister said the meeting would also "set up goals for the fifth mandate ... as well as amend the committee's charter to comply with the present situation and constitutional law of the International Olympic Committee".
