វាក្យសព្ទ សំរាប់ថ្ងៃនេះ Vocabularies for today


I read both Khmer and English news every day. I came across these three words:

1. Cronyism
2. Nepotism
3. Kleptocratic

What do these words really mean ? I went on the internet for the definitions. Here's what I found out:

Cronyism (noun) : Favoritism shown or granted to friends without regard for their qualifications, as in political appointments to office.

Nepotism (noun): Favoritism shown or granted to families without regard for their qualifications, as in political appointments to office or doing businesses.

Kleptoracy (noun) : A government characterized by rampant greed and corruption.

Can anybody think of a country governs by these three characteristic ?

វាសំជាមានលក្ខណៈឥចឹងមែន បើមើលតាមពត៌មាន នានា មកពីប្រទេសខ្មែរ ។ ឧទាហរណ៍ "សាខានែ មែកធាង ដើមឈើពុករលួយ បំផ្លាញស្រុកខ្មែរ"​ ។

សត្វស្វាដែលគេបំពាក់ គ្រឿងអល្លង្ការ ព្រមដោយមកុដរាជ មើលទៅវាសសង្ហាដូចព្រះមហាក្សត្រមួយអង្គ
តែបើកាលណាវារមាស់ក្បាល វាតែងភ្លេចខ្លួន ស្មានតែក្បាលវានៅទទេ វាក៏តាំងលើកជើងភ្លាតអេះ
ក្បាល ធ្វើអោយយើងស្គាល់វាច្បាស់ជាសត្វស្វាតែម្ដង។

It is so easy to answer you question. It is CAMBODIA. Cambodia under Hun Sen has all of the characteristics! I feel so bad for Cambodia. We must fight for change. I don't mean using gun, but by words.
AnythingAtAll and Cambodia

Chamroeun,
Your encouragement means a lot to me. Encouragement that is all I need. I'm glad what I wrote is read from afar--- wide and clear.

Thank you!

Vanak.
