The National Assembly has unanimously approved the 10th proposed amendment to the country’s constitution.
The approval was made at the NA’s 7th session of the 6th legislature held here this morning under the chairmanship of Samdech Akka Moha Ponhea Chakrei Heng Samrin, President of NA.
Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen was also present on the occasion.
The proposed amendment to 8 articles in the constitution aims to ensure the supreme institution of Cambodia, particularly the executive body in charge of leading overall national affairs, could operate smoothly and sustainably, said H.E. Keut Rith, Minister of Justice, who represented the Royal Government to defend the draft law.
It will also ensure the protection and maintenance of the country’s peace, social security, public order, and political stability at all circumstances which is the foundation for the nation’s development and happiness of the Cambodian people, he added.
H.E. Keut Rith also reaffirmed that this 10th amendment to Cambodia constitution is all for the national interest, and will not degrade the country’s multi-party democracy under a constitutional monarchy. The amendment will supplement the 1993 constitution for the best of Cambodia and its people.
