Sirirath remains committed to politics

Prince Sisowath Sirirath, second deputy president of Funcinpec, told the Post Tuesday he has no intention of quitting politics, despite pressure from other royals to keep the royal family separate from national politics.

Sirirath said until a law is passed prohibiting him from party membership, he will continue his political work. "When I was a boy, I began studying politics. It is the only subject I know well."

Sirirath's comments follow a public statement by Prince Sisowath Thomico on Tuesday urging any royal with connections to the palace to quit all political activities and party memberships.
