Hun Sen said that after the cabinet members of the new government take office, he will use 100 days to evaluate their performance in office.
He revealed that the young leadership of the new government will face many challenges in national and international issues, and these 100 days will be a test of what actions they will take.
Hun Sen also revealed that this year’s Water Delivery Festival and National Independence Day large-scale activities are also a test of the new leadership’s ability to win the trust of the people. He hoped that the new leadership would show youth, vitality, courage, and a true will to serve the country, the people, and lead the economy.
It is understood that this year’s Water Festival in Cambodia will last for three days from November 26 to 28, and Independence Day will be held on November 9.

He also emphasized that he will only serve as the chairman of the Senate for one term, and then he will give more opportunities to future successors.
