Prime Minster Hun Sen of Cambodia has been in power for more than 30 years. On one recent Wednesday, he vowed to stay in power.

''After witnessing  the treasonous acts of some Cambodians in recent days,'' he said, ''I've decided to continue my job for another 30 years.''

Citizens, Students, Professors and Teachers may have thought it was up to them to decide, in general elections next year, who'll govern their country next year.

Mr Hun Sen has set them straight :

He has no intention of losing that election or future elections to an opposition that did better than expected in the last vote in 2013.

If this means charging of opposition leaders with treason, so be it.

Earlier this month, Kem Sokha, leader of the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party, was arrested on charges of plotting to overthrow Mr. Hun Sen's government.

The charges were based on 2013 video in which Mr. Kem Sokha spoke of bringing democratic change to Cambodia.
