Opposition party cancels rally for late king

Opposition party youths yesterday announced that they have revised their plans to protest the composition of the National Election Committee next week in Phnom Penh in order to show respect for the memory of the late King Father Norodom Sihanouk.

Instead of protesting, on October 23 some 400 representatives of the Sam Rainsy Party Youth Movement will shave their heads and then parade to the Royal Palace to mourn the King Father’s passing.

He said that the demonstration demanding changes to the NEC’s composition will be rescheduled for November 8.
