Former Cambodian leader Hun Sen was promoted to senate president on Wednesday, taking over a key ceremonial role less than a year after handing power to his son. On Wednesday, senators unanimously voted to approve Hun Sen as president of the senate after King Norodom Sihamoni convened its first meeting. The position allows Hun Sen to act as acting head of state when the king is overseas.
