A Mountain of Ministers

The Cambodian government's cabinet is comprised of:

1 prime minister, a ridiculous 9 deputy prime ministers,15 senior ministers, 13 ministers attached to the prime minister and 27 other ministers.

And within the cabinet there are a staggering 179 secretaries of states.


Bloated much?

But corruption means there are favours to be given and repaid and so, just like the armed forces where generals are stupidly plentiful, government staggers under the burden of senior bureaucrats each with agendas of their own.
