Jeff Daigle would become the United States’ chargé d’affaires to Cambodia tomorrow, the US embassy in Phnom Penh confirmed yesterday. Spokesman Sean McIntosh said Daigle would temporarily succeed ambassador Carol Rodley, whose resignation was announced earlier this month, until a new ambassador was nominated, confirmed and credentialled. Daigle has been the deputy chief of mission at the US embassy in Phnom Penh since late June. Before that, he served for two years in the US State Department’s Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs. Daigle was the public affairs officer for the US embassy in Phnom Penh between 2005 and 2008. US ambassadors are nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate.
