As stated by Kem Rithysith, one of slain political analyst Kem Ley’s younger brothers, he has decided to form a political party. It is to be called the Kem Ley Party and take part in the upcoming national election in July.
He also stated that the party’s goals are to further develop the country following the concepts laid down by his late brother.
“Moreover, forming the Kem Ley Party is in accordance with the [Kingdom’s] laws [and is a measure] … to prevent extremists using the name of Dr. Kem Ley as a tool for political purposes,” he said.
He calls on Mr. Ley’s previous supporters to join him in his effort to carry on with his assassinated brother’s endeavor to better the Kingdom.
