Prince Norodom Ranariddh calls for Cambodians of all parties to unite at the official launch of the Community of Royalist People’s Party on June 6, 2014.

PHNOM PENH, (Khmer Times) — Speaking at the party’s inauguration celebration, Prince Norodom Ranariddh, president of the Community of Royalist People’s Party (CRPP), said that the main purpose of the CRPP is to protect the constitutional monarchy of Cambodia.
 
“We want to have solidarity between all people who are patriots, monarchy supporters and ordinary citizens, even though they come from different political parties, in order to protect our country,” Prince Ranariddh stressed. 
 
He stated that he was happy when the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) and Cambodia People’s Party (CPP) agreed to negotiation to end their deadlock ten months ago, but that there had been no benefit for the country. 
 
“I agree to reform the National Election Committee, but we should negotiate before an election, not after. Our party will not demonstrate like Mr. Sam Rainsy to gain political benefits,” he added.
 
“The leaders of the CNRP did not clearly understand the constitution in demanding a new national election before the end of the current mandate. The constitution states that the mandate of the National Assembly is five years,” Prince Ranariddh reiterated. 
 
In response to the Prince’s comments, Mr. Sam Rainsy said, “The previous experiences of the politicians who took this position did not achieve any results. I do not occupy my time with this useless issue. I am not interested and give no value to what he said.”
 
Prince Norodom Ranariddh suggested that the CNRP, which has 55 seats in the National Assembly, should join the current session which was created by election and is representative of the Cambodian people. 
 
About 250 members of the CRPP representing all of the provinces participated in the inauguration party at the headquarters of the CRPP on June 6, 2014.
