Hun Sen is a key to Ranariddh’s political resurrection

Prime Minister Hun Sen seemed to play a major role in Prince Ranariddh’s decision to return to politics. However, he seemed to be both a key and a hurdle to Prince Ranariddh’s political resurrection.

In a statement
released yesterday, Prime Minister Hun Sen said he had neither opposed
nor given a green light to Prince Ranariddh (pictured) toreturn to
politics after the prince sought Mr. Hun Sen’s advice (permission),
through an intermediary TV anchorman Soy Sopheap, about hisreturn to politics. However, he had given his strong displeasure to Prince Ranariddh’s return
to politics by firing a strong warning to all Funcinpec officials not
to defect to Prince Ranariddh party or they will be sacked from their
positions within the government.

Mr. Hun Sen’s warning came
after Prince Ranariddh had called on all Funcinpec officials to defect
to his party after rumours milling around that all Funcinpec officials
who defected to his party will still retain their positions. Mr. Hun
Sen also dispelled ruomours that he will form a tripartite coalition
government with Funcinpec and the Norodom Ranariddh Party as his
coalition partners. “I will not form
a tripartite coalition government of Cambodian People’s
Party-Funcinpect-Norodom Ranariddh Party. And those who leave the
Funcinpec Party to join with other parties will be sacked from their
positions”,
Mr. Hun Sen said through the statement.

Prince Ranarridh has been campaigning actively
for his political comeback recently. But Mr. Hun Sen’s latest statement
seemed to be a strong displeasure and an indirect disendorsement of his
return to politics. With such a statement from Mr. Hun Sen, the fate of
Prince Ranariddh’s political comeback seemed to have been sealed.
