PM Hun Sen yesterday threatened to unleash war on the opposition party if he loses patience with their campaign for the commune council elections, saying it did not matter that his rivals were unarmed and that his party would burn their homes down. Speaking at a conference for Cambodia’s Christian community in Phnom Penh, and breaking with his custom of not campaigning during the official pre-election period, Hun Sen called on opposition leader Kem Sokha to “calm down” his party or risk a one-sided war.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs yesterday sought to deflect criticism that the ruling party invited election observers of questionable credibility to rubber-stamp election results, as other monitors held training sessions around the country in preparation for the June 4 commune elections.

The paper uses Cambodia’s 2013 election as an example .
The Ministry of Commerce launched an online trademark registration gateway yesterday, allowing local and foreign individuals and firms to register their trademarks in Cambodia to protect them against infringement. The Online Mark Filing System allows trademark applicants to upload the required documents and information using an internet-connected device to register their mark. It was launched as an option for filing trademarks and will operate alongside the existing manual registration system. Minister of Commerce said the new paperless system would make it easier for companies to register their trademarks.
The National Election Committee (NEC) yesterday urged factory owners and other employers to provide adequate time off for workers who need to travel to vote in the June 4 commune elections, though a Labour Ministry spokesman said most had the day off already. “To allow people to exercise their legal rights, the NEC would like to appeal to the owners of all enterprises, companies, factories, hotels, restaurants and institutions in Cambodia to make it convenient for employees and workers to travel to vote on Sunday, June 4, 2017, at their communes where they have registered names,” NEC President wrote.
