CNRP election preparation begins in earnest

The Cambodian National Rescue Party is preparing to post 10,000 billboards across the country in the run-up to the July nation election, a spokesman said yesterday.

“We have been working together on an awareness campaign,” said Yim Sovann, spokesman for the Sam Rainsy Party.

Members of the SRP and the Human Rights Party – the two opposition groups who merged to form the CNRP – announced yesterday that they will hold key meetings in April to formalise the merger and move toward dissolving the parties.

After the HRP’s congress meeting on April 6, president Kem Sokha will formally become deputy president of the CNRP, HRP spokesman Pol Ham said.
