Interior Minister Sar Kheng today told government officials to not underestimate CNRP supporters set on welcoming the return of their exiled leaders.
Mr Kheng made his comment during an address to officials in Preah Vihear province, noting supporters of the court-dissolved CNRP continued to gather to discuss plans to oppose the government and welcome their leaders.
“Even until now, their supporters are still gathering and formulating their evil plan by hosting noodle eating parties in which we all must be aware of,” he said. “We must educate other citizens to not fall for their political propaganda and cause social disruptions.”
CNRP officials were banned from politics for five years in a Supreme Court decision in November 2017. Mr Kheng said the party was dissolved, but some former members continue to disregard the decision.
“Some of them carried out activities overseas in order to garner support within the country and try generate an illegal movement to topple to the government. We all know this, right?” he said.
Mr Kheng said CNRP supporters are attempting to stir anger among the public in order to cause social insecurity and political instability.
