Three deputy governors at the National Bank of Cambodia (NBC) were appointed to the ruling party’s central committee at the party’s congress on Sunday.

Chea Serey, Ouk Maly and Neav Chanthana were inducted along with more than 300 other party members into the Cambodian People’s Party’s Central Committee, which now has more than 800 members.

Sok Puthyvuth, head of the Cambodia Rice Federation, and Chea Vuthy, an official at the Council for the Development of Cambodia, were also elevated. NBC Governor Chea Chanto, the father of Chea Serey, already sits on the CPP’s Standing Committee, a more senior and influential body within the ruling party.
