What do you think of the Constitution?By Mang Channo

Oum Ang Ron
I don't think the constitution is fair or democratic enough. The people should have been given more power.

Everything that is bad in this country was due to poor government. It should have also paid more attention to government

workers.It is not perfect but it is a start towards democracy for our country. I wanted to know, however, why they

did not say more about the crime situation. In Phnom Penh things are very dark now.

Im Chunvanarith
I understand that the government is trying to lay the foundations for democracy. No party or people were suppressed.

Now the government must do what they can for the poor and improve the education system.

Kouch Nam Heng
I heard that some of the decisions were not fair but anyway I would like to see the assembly do something about

crime, although, I don't know what they can do.

Bun Chanarith
Sometimes it seemed like they did not clear up reservations about some issues but they passed them anyway.

I am still not clear about the laws regarding power sharing. I would like to see the government clarify these issues.

Nuth Tree
I don't know what the government can do to protect us against inflation. I also appeal to the new government

to develop the countryside and help the poor people.
