No future coalition, says SRP, Funcinpec

Officials from the Sam Rainsy Party and Funcinpec on Wednesday ruled out any possibility of a future  coalition.

SRP spokesman Yim Sovann said his party would welcome Funcinpec but only if they embraced the opposition party's platform.

Nhek Bun Chhay, secretary general of Funcinpec, which last week announced a future merger with the Norodom Ranariddh Party, said differences in vision with the SRP precluded any possible coalition.

The SRP's outlook, Nhek Bun Chay said, is to oppose the government on everything, adding that Funcinpec would be willing to partner with the ruling Cambodian People's Party.
