Party crashers: Complaints against CPP, CNRP on rise

The number of complaints against political parties for alleged campaign violations since the campaign kicked off last Thursday has surged to 35, the National Election Committee.

After the first four days of campaigning, only nine complaints had been filed, NEC Secretary-General Tep Nytha said, though the new complaints were largely related to the same issues.

“It’s the same, same cases. None of these concern any serious issues,” he said.

The opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party has continually accused the ruling Cambodian People’s Party of defacing its propaganda, particularly in the provinces, while the Phnom Penh Municipality has now filed 13 complaints against the CNRP for hanging election propaganda on public street posts.

CNRP spokesman Yim Sovann called those complaints “laughable” on Sunday, saying the CPP has done the same thing.

Of the complaints, nine have been resolved, Nytha said, with all being filed to provincial or commune level election commissions.
