HRP president urges US to monitor elections

Human Rights Party President Kem Sokha said yesterday he had urged United States Foreign Affairs officials to monitor upcoming elections in Cambodia next year and in 2013, during a three-week tour of 17 American states. During the trip to drum up party support ahead of commune elections next year and National Assembly elections in 2013, Kem Sohka said US Foreign Affairs official Adam N. Davis hadn’t confirmed whether or not the US would send observers, as he had requested. US embassy spokesman Mark Wenig said yesterday that it was too early to say whether his government would deploy observers.
