>Cambodian Prince Ranariddh to leave politics, work for the palace


Prince Ranariddh who was forced to live in exile.
PHNOM PENH, Aug. 25 (Xinhua) — Cambodian Prince Norodom Ranariddh is expected to resign as head of his self-named party and quit politics, fellow royal Prince Sisowath Thomico said, suggesting that the move could be part of a plan for his return from exile, local newspaper reported Monday.

“I heard of his intentions two weeks ago,” Sisowath Thomico was quoted by the Phnom Penh Post as saying.

He added that he did not know if the resignation would be permanent or temporary.

Former king Norodom Sihanouk had often requested that Ranariddh give up politics and focus on improving the nation, Sisowath Thomico said.

Ranariddh, who left Cambodia last year under a cloud of legal problems, is living in Malaysia.
