CNRP get the green light for congress in capital

A national congress of the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party has been approved by City Hall after it earlier said the gathering would not be allowed. The congress will be held at Phnom Penh’s Wat Botum Park, according to a letter released on Thursday by Phnom Penh governor Pa Socheatvong. “Phnom Penh Municipality has agreed [to the CNRP’s request],” the letter reads. CNRP members said they would discuss Tuesday’s decision to enter parliament after a number of reforms were made to the election law and National Election Committee.
