Rescue Party denied from Election Committee reshuffle

The Ministry of Interior has rejected a request from the newly formed opposition Cam­­bodian National Rescue Party for a change in the com­position of the National Elec­tion Committee.

A letter signed by Sar Kheng of Mini­s­ter of Interior last Friday ob­­tained by the Post yesterday responded to the Cambodian National Rescue Party repre­sentatives’ request that the NEC and lower-level election commissions switch their membership to include all political parties.

Opposition Sam Rainsy Party acting pres­ident Kong Korm and Human Rights Party spokesman Pol Ham yesterday maintained that the NEC’s current com­position is not neutral.
