Sokha not for name change

Kem Sokha has refused to change the name of his Human Rights Party, after declaring

the name was not against the law, local media reported. The Cambodian Human Rights

Action Committee - a coalition of 22 NGOs - issued a statement on 12 June demanding

that Sokha change his party's name in order to avoid confusion between the activities

of independent rights NGOs and political parties. Sokha said the request was nothing

but a demand made by a small number of NGOs, and that in other countries the same

name was also used.
