A Politician’s Platform of Ideology, Not Votes

Khem Veasna is the founder and president of the League for Democracy Party (LDP), one of the smaller parties contesting next year’s commune elections and the national elections in 2018. He started his party after splitting from the Sam Rainsy Party in 2006 and has often been an outspoken critic of the government and opposition. He talked to Khmer Times’ Alan Parkhouse about his hopes for Cambodia, the role he wants his party to play and the changes he’d like to make to the prime minister’s job.
