Hun Sen: Cambodia Not to Follow Tunisia’s Path

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen said Thursday he will not allow his country to follow any situation as happened in Tunisia.

Delivering
speech at inauguration of a hospital in Kompong Cham province, Hun Sen
said his country will not follow the same trace of Tunisia.

“I
will close the door and hit the dog inside,” Hun Sen said, referring to
a Cambodian politician who suggested a similar example in Tunisia be
practiced in Cambodia.

But, Hun Sen did not name the politician except saying he is staying abroad.

Hun
Sen said he came to power through people’s votes and he will only lose
his power through the same channel. He became the prime minister in
1985, or 26 years since then.

Former Tunisian President Zine
al-Abidine Ben Ali, who had ruled the country for 23 years, was ousted
from power last week following mass protests from the people. He fled
to Saudi Arabia last Saturday.

Hun Sen is vice president of the
ruling Cambodian People’s Party which won 90 of the total 123-seat
parliament in the last general election held in 2008.
