District changes: Top officials transferred in reshuffle

A reshuffle of top officials across districts in Phnom Penh was announced yesterday by City Hall.

Long Dimanche, City Hall spokesman, said a number of district officials will be transferred into new roles.

“Pich Koe Mony, Tuol Kork district deputy governor, will be appointed Meanchey district governor in place of Kuoch Chamroeun, who will replace Sok Sambath, the Daun Penh district governor. Sambath will be named the [inaugural] Prek Phnov district governor.”

Dimanche said Thuy Sakhorn, a Russey Keo district governor during the 1990s, will return to the fold as that district’s governor, replacing Khlaing Huot, who will become governor of the newly established Chroy Changva district.

This morning, Phnom Penh Governor Pa Socheatvong will preside over one of two ceremonies in which those transfers will be made official, Dimanche added.

The changes follow the redrawing of boundaries in the capital to create three new districts.
