PHNOM PENH, March 15, 2014 (Khmer Times) – The Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) has responded to the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) which asked to reform the National Election Committee.
In a letter, Bin Chhin, head of CPP’s Joint Committee for Election Reform, said that the framework for future election reform were issues that the Joint Committee has already prepared such as voters’ registration, lists of voters and preparation for creation of law on financing of political parties.
“The CPP agreed to accept the reform of election institution to be included in framework of election reform,” said the letter.
However, it has not been ascertained whether the CNRP would accept this as they have insisted that reforms be agreed, done first before any progress can be made.
“We will stop the negotiation … It is useless because it is a delay in order to lie to foreign countries to get funds,” Sam Rainsy, president of Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), said Wednesday to his supporters in a newly-created Tbong Khmom province.
“We have to talk about the keys for change to National Election Committee,” he said. “We will resume talk if there is change to the National Election Committee”.
Mr. Rainsy said CNRP will lead the protest after stopping negotiation with Cambodian People’s Party, threats about more protests being the key word here.
