The National Assembly (NA) gave a vote of confidence, 123 out of the 125 members of parliaments in favor of him.

According to The Phnom Penh Post, King Norodom Sihamoni has bestowed upon Manet the honorific “Kitti Tesaphibal Bindit”, a title for a leader with profound knowledge and highest intelligence who will lead the country to greater prosperity.
