Alliance challenged

The Editor,

Recently the Free Republican Party (FRP) has received news that Mr Bit Seang Lim

has made an alliance with the Cambodian People's Party in the name of the FRP. On

behalf of the FRP Central Committee and as the party's Secretary-General, I would

like to clarify that until now all members of the FRP Executive Committee and Central

Committee do not wish to make any alliance with the CPP at all. The decision of one

individual cannot be considered an official decision of the Free Republican Party.

The FRP has an Executive Committee with enough members to decide on the affairs of

the party as stated in the bylaws of the party.

Based on the decision not to make an alliance with the CP P by the majority of the

Executive Committee members, I officially declare that the FRP does not recognize

the alliance between the Free Republican Party and the Cambodian People's Party.

This is an official rejection from the Free Republican Party.

- Mour Ley, Secretary-General, Free Republican Party, San Leandro, California.
