PM could do with lesson in political tact

Dear Editor,

Perhaps the prime minister does not understand the value of political tact.  Lashing out at political opponents at events such as high school graduations and new development ground-breakings is not only inappropriate to the event but comes across as immature and petty.

Does the leader of this nation not truly understand the influence he holds over the Cambodian population? 

Positive, intelligent speech would go far to help the general public.

If a political issue is so important, why not call a press conference and face the issue and the press directly and respectfully?
