Five new ruling party ministers were welcomed into the country’s Cabinet yesterday in ceremonies presided over by senior members of the government including Prime Minister Hun Sen and Deputy Prime Minister Sok An. A day after the prime minister—in a more than six-hour speech—pledged to turn over a new leaf promising a more open, reformist government, Mr. Hun Sen welcomed in Aun Porn Moniroth as the new Finance Minister at a ceremony at the Ministry of Finance under the close watch of a large contingent of his personal bodyguards and riot police stationed nearby.
