Opposition party would import US school system to Cambodia


After more than one month overseas, Kem Sokha, deputy president of the newly formed Cambodian National Rescue Party, returned to the Kingdom yesterday after participating in the International Leaders Forum at the Democratic National Convention in the US.

Sokha said former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright had invited him to the forum, where he met with high-rank-ing US officials, and focused on the US education system, which he promised to import if elections fall in his favour.

“If Cambodian National Rescue Party wins elections to run the government, I will arrange the educational system of the US in Cambodia so that Khmer youth can receive a progressive, quality education to receive good jobs,” Kem Sokha said.

Senior ruling Cambodian People’s Party lawmaker Cheam Yeap said that Sokha was being unreasonable, noting the disparity in the economic clout of the two countries.
