The Prime Minister has ordered the authorities to protect all political party candidates and their activists to make for a free and fair national election.
He made this statement at the inauguration of the Phnom Penh Safari on Saturday, June 23.
“I would like to remind our CPP that we do not think about winning, but we must think about the whole nation. Do not forget that we are the ruling party, so we must take the responsibility for a free and fair election.”
“For the value of the previous and current democracy, we do not think only about winning for the CPP, but we think about winning for our nation through free and fair elections.”
He made quite clear that all 20 parties are free to engage in politics in Cambodia.
