CPP youth to start work next month

The ruling Cambodian People’s Party’s (CPP) Kampong Thom provincial permanent committee plans to unveil a “Quick Reaction Youth” group next month that will respond to “political attacks from the opposition party”, Nam Tun, chief of the CPP’s provincial councillors in Kampong Thom, said Monday. According to a March 18 directive signed by Nam Tun, the group will be trained to respond at the “grassroots” level to opposition propaganda sayings such as “the CPP is a dictatorial party that shuts down people’s rights”, and “the provision of economic land concessions to various foreign companies means that the CPP is selling the land to the [Vietnamese]”. The organisation is currently receiving applications, Nam Tun said. Sam Rainsy Party spokesman Yim Sovann said Monday that the CPP had to “take responsibility for inflation, corruption and land-grabbing rather than continuing to make propaganda”.
