In Brief: NRP congress to revise party name

The Norodom Ranariddh Party (NRP) is scheduled to hold a national

congress later this month where it will debate whether to remove its

founder's name from the title of the party. NRP spokesman Pen Sangha

told the Post on Sunday that 600 members of the party's National

Council will gather at the party's headquarter in Kandal province on

June 27 to vote for a change to the party's current name and to elect a

new party president. Prince Norodom Ranariddh founded the party in 2007

but retired from politics in October last year.
