Comfrel opposes monks in politics

Koul Panha, director of Comfrel, the Committee for Free and Fair Elections, says

Cambodia's monks should exercise their right to vote in elections, but should not

run in them. The constitution allows for all Cambodians over the age of 18 to vote.

There are estimated to be 500,000 Buddhist monks in the country.
