The worst dressed Prime Minister in Asia is looking good now that he no longer needs to pretend to be a civilian. Lovable Hun Sen began work as a Battalion Commander in the Khmer Rouge. So, its ironic that new legislation (that gives him more power) comes at the time when a Jolie film about the Killing Fields Premieres at Angkor Wat.
Private Tye has been following the career of this endearing and honest person. Hun Sen is good friends with President Dirty of The Philippines, they see eye to eye on legal matters such as Extra-judicial killing and political Assassination. He used to be friends with Hilary Clinton but not anymore.
He still enjoys great popularity on facebook especially with people working at Indian click farms.
The story from ABC (20 Feb):
Cambodia changes political rules in 'triumph of dictatorship', critics say
Cambodia's authoritarian government has changed the law covering political parties, in what some commentators are calling the "final triumph of dictatorship".
The amendments make it easy for Cambodia's Ministry of Interior and Supreme Court — both widely seen as controlled by the ruling Cambodian People's Party (CPP) — to dissolve a political party on the basis that it threatens "national unity".
A new ban on people with criminal convictions from holding senior political party roles or standing for office effectively bars opposition figure Sam Rainsy.
He lives in France to avoid defamation charges he says were politically motivated.
"The passage of these amendments marks the final consolidation of absolute power in the hands of Prime Minister Hun Sen and the ruling Cambodian People's Party," said Phil Robertson, deputy Asia director at Human Rights Watch.
Hun Sen has served as Prime Minister for more than three decades.
"This day will be remembered for the triumph of dictatorship over the dream of the Paris Peace Accords for a rights-respecting, multi-party democracy," Mr Robertson said.The National Assembly vote was never in doubt after the opposition Cambodian National Rescue Party (CNRP) boycotted the vote.
Approval by the Senate and the King is considered a formality.
