Four Funcipec members in Pursat resign from party

Four high-ranking Funcinpec party members in Pursat province have submitted a letter to party President Prince Norodom, announcing their resignations.

The letter, dated June 5 and obtained by The Post on Thursday, was signed by Oum Saran, the provincial executive deputy party chief in charge of Krakor district; Ny Yan, provincial executive deputy chief in charge of Kandieng district; Huy Seng Ing, deputy chief of the election working group in charge of Pursat town; and Keo Sokna, executive director of Pursat town.

The four noted in the letter to Ranariddh that their resignation was caused by disagreements with internal management, family issues, nepotism, false accusations, insults and loss of interest as the result of having their contributions ignored.

“All of these are the reason for our resignations from Funcipec,” the letter read.

Contact information of the four ex-party members could not be found.

Nheb Bun Chhin, spokesperson for the party, on Thursday said he was unaware of the resignations.

“I have not received any information. You can ask the general secretary as he might know. This morning, I went to a meeting at the National Assembly,” Bun Chinn said.

This isn’t the first time this year Funcipec has experienced turmoil. On January 25, the party terminated four high-ranking members, including the deputy secretary-general, on the recommendation of Ranariddh.
