Rainsy says CNRP wants to negotiate

The opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party will seek to restart negotiations with the Cambodian People’s Party today in a renewed effort to break the longstanding political deadlock, CNRP leader Sam Rainsy announced last night.

In a statement, Rainsy said he had spoken to Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Sar Kheng to inform him that CNRP lawmaker-elects would be contacting CPP officials today.

“We hope to reach a comprehensive agreement soon in order to break the current political stalemate. The CNRP delegation will come up with a proposal to detail the main points stated in the draft joint statement, which contains principles already agreed upon by the two parties.”

When reached last night, Rainsy said the CNRP would first seek to nail down “concrete proposals and formulas [on] how to make the new [National Election Committee] work effectively”. He declined to comment further.
