Hun Sen accused Ranariddh of wanting to topple Nhiek Bunchhay

Prime Minister has accused Prince Ranariddh, once his political
bedfellow and other time his political nemesis, of wanting to topple
Nhiek Bunchhay from his position as Secretary General of the Funcinpec
Party, nearly a week after the prince announced his return to politics.

In
a public speech during the inauguration of the University of
Battambang, Mr. Hun Sen accused the prince of wanting to topple his
protege Mr. Nhiek Bunchhay from his position after the prince called on
all members of the Funcinpec Party to defect to his yet-to-be renamed
Norodom Ranariddh Party at a public speech in Kampong Cham on Saturday.
Prince Ranariddh said he will accept all Funcinpec members, except
Nhiek Bunchhay and Keo Put Rasmy, his brother-in-law who is the current
president of the Funcinpec Party.

Gen. Nhiek Bunchay, once
Prince Ranariddh’s most trusted lieutenant and now his biggest
political nemesis, had engineered Prince Ranariddh’s ouster as
president of the Funcinpec Party on 18th October 2006.

Mr. Hun Sen has warned Prince Ranariddh
that he will be sacked from his position as president of the supreme
advisory council to King Sihamoni, a position he held since his
retirement from politics after the 2008 election. Mr. Hun Sen said he was
the one who requested the king to appoint Prince Ranariddh to the
position, therefore he can also request to the king to terminate his
role from that position.
