The Mirror, Vol. 12, No. 579

“The organizing structures of the National Assembly and of the fourth term Royal Government were voted upon with a vote of confidence.

“In the morning of 25 September 2008, the National Assembly opened its first session under the presidency of Mr. Chea Soth, the eldest member.

“During the session, the fourth term National Assembly elected the president, the vice-presidents, and the chairpersons of the nine commissions of the National Assembly, but during the vote of confidence to create the fourth term Royal Government, the members of the Sam Rainsy Party and of the Human Rights Party were not present in the National Assembly. However, the session did not lack a quorum. Samdech Ponhea Chakrey Heng Samrin was elected President of the National Assembly, Mr. Nguon Nhel First Vice President of the National Assembly, Mr. Say Chhum Second Vice President of the National Assembly, and nine other members from the Cambodian People’s Party were elected to chair the nine commissions of the National Assembly. In addition, the National Assembly conducted a (package) vote [one vote for the whole list of names, not on the individual names ] of confidence in the 249 members of the fourth term Royal Government as shown in the list below:
