Hun Sen was the Chairmen of the Council of Ministers in the People's Republic of Kampuchea from 1985 January 14 to 1989 May 1. During this time, Vietnam began to withdraw from the area. In 1989, Kampuchea was changed to the State of Cambodia, making Hun Sen the Chairmen of the Council of Ministers in Cambodia. On 1993 July 2, Hun Sen began sharing the position of Prime Minister with Prince Norodom Ranariddh, but on September 21 of that year, the Prince asserted his superiority, making himself First Prime Minister, and Hun Sen Second Prime Minister.
On September 24, The Kingdom of Cambodia was restored, with Norodom Sihanouk being restored as King, with Norodom and Ung Huot sharing First Prime Minister status with Hun Sen remaining as second prime minister. This continued until 1998 November 30, when Hun Sen once again became prime minister.
