The two main political parties will restart talks today in a face-to-face meeting between two senior officials from each party’s negotiation working groups.
Kuoy Bunroeun, a Cambodia National Rescue Party lawmaker-elect, confirmed yesterday that he had contacted Prum Sokha, a secretary of state at the Interior Ministry, and organised a meeting this morning at a confidential location.
The focus of the meeting will be on election reform, Bunroeun said, and will aim to pave the way for a top-level meeting to occur between Prime Minister Hun Sen and opposition leader Sam Rainsy.
In early April, Hun Sen and Rainsy were said to have reached an agreement on National Election Committee overhaul.
Sokha could not be reached for comment yesterday, but senior CPP lawmaker Cheam Yeap said that negotiations would be based on points agreed to during previous talks.
