Opposition officials to rally again for reforms

The Ministry of Interior has allowed the Cambodia National Rescue Party to hold a rally today in Freedom Park, but only 100 of the attendees are allowed to march to deliver a petition to the UN and EU offices. The CNRP is demanding that the National Election Committee implement reforms, as it did at a rally at the end of April. Khuong Sreng, deputy governor of Phnom Penh, said yesterday that the municipality capped the number of marchers at 100, and there would be no change to allow more.
