Norodom Ranariddh - Biography
Norodom Ranariddh (Khmer: នរោត្តម រណឫទ្ធិ; born 2 January 1944) is a Cambodian prince, politician and law academic. He is the second son of Norodom Sihanouk of Cambodia and a half-brother of the current king, Norodom Sihamoni. Ranariddh is a graduate of the University of Provence and started his career as a law researcher and lecturer in France. In 1983, Ranariddh joined FUNCINPEC, a Cambodian royalist political party. Three years later in 1986, he became the chief-of-staff and commander-in-chief of the Armee Nationale Sihanoukiste. Ranariddh became the secretary-general of FUNCINPEC in 1989, and its president in 1992. When the party won the most seats in the 1993 Cambodian general election, he became the First Prime Minister of Cambodia in a coalition government with Hun Sen as the Second Prime Minister. Ranariddh promoted business interests in Cambodia to leaders from regional countries and established the Cambodian Development Council (CDC). Relations between Ranariddh and Hun Sen became increasingly strained from 1996 onwards due to policy and administration conflicts in the government.
