Vendors in rent demand

About 800 vendors from Battambang town’s Phsar Natt market protested for lower rent outside the town’s provincial hall on Wednesday. The stall holders were requesting that provinicial governor, Prach Chan, help decrease the rent on their stalls following a recent 10 percent price increase. The vendors claim he raised the rent 50 percent in 2008 saying it was the final increase. The governor was reportedly at the border. And Vong Ka Un, the marker owner, could not be reached for comment yesterday.
