    Hun Sen is a Cambodian politician and former military commander who has served as the prime minister and de-facto dictator of Cambodia since 1998.

    History

    The future Cambodian dictator initially fought for the Khmer Rouge in the Cambodian Civil War and was a Battalion Commander in Democratic Kampuchea until defecting in 1977 to fight on the side of the Vietnamese to overthrow Pol Pot’s regime and came to serve as foreign minister under the Vietnamese puppet regime after Democratic Kampuchea had fallen. Hun Sen became Prime Minister of Cambodia in 1985 and held the position until the 1993 UN-backed elections which resulted in a hung parliament, with the opposition party FUNCINPEC winning the majority of votes. Because of Hun Sen’s resistance to accepting the results President of FUNCINPEC, Norodom Ranariddh had to concede. Norodom Ranariddh and Hun Sen agreed to simultaneously serve as First and Second Prime Minister until the coalition broke down and Hun Sen orchestrated a coup d'état in 1997 which toppled Ranariddh.

    Since 1998, Hun Sen has led the Cambodian People’s Party, CPP to consecutive and often contentious election victories, overseeing rapid economic growth and development, but also corruption, deforestation, and human rights violations. Hun Sen’s dictatorial regime has come under much scrutiny from international human rights organizations, the European Union, the US, and a domestic democracy movement led by opposition leaders Sam Rainsy and Mu Sochua. Despite this Hun Sen is rather popular with the older population who survived the Khmer Rouge and people who live in the countryside and work in the agricultural sector.

    Because of the government’s neoliberal economic policy, Hun Sen’s Cambodia has become referred to as a “County for sale” by political dissidents and detractors. Cambodia has drawn increasingly to China in foreign policy and many Chinese corporations are allowed to operate freely and get away with lucrative business practices in Cambodia without consequence. During the political crisis in neighboring Thailand, Hun Sen was accused by Thai Royalists of harboring red shirts militias allied with former Thai Prime Minister and billionaire Thaksin Shinawatra to help him overthrow Chakri Dynasty.

    In 2013, Hun Sen and the CPP were reelected with a significantly reduced majority. Allegations of voter fraud led to widespread anti-government protests. In 2018 he was elected to a sixth term in a largely unopposed poll after the dissolution of the opposition party, with the CPP winning every seat in the National Assembly, thus making Cambodia a de-facto one-party dictatorship.
