CNRP refiles candidate list for election

Back for seconds

The Cambodia National Rescue Party refiled its candidate list to the National Election Committee yesterday after revising “minor errors” that prevented its initial acceptance, and announced it would be holding another rally at Freedom Park on May 20 to call for electoral reforms.

“We urge the NEC to revise the voter list, because a million voters have lost their names, and to allow His Excellency Sam Rainsy to return before Election Day safely and without conditions. And [we ask them] to support and implement the recommendations of the UN [Special] Rapporteur [Surya Subedi],” said CNRP spokesman Yim Sovann.

Subedi is scheduled to begin a seven-day visit to Cambodia on Sunday, in which he will follow up on recommendations made in his previous human rights reports.

Tep Nytha, secretary-general of the NEC, said the body had received the CNRP’s list of candidates and would decide whether it passed muster today.
