The Rule of Law

The Council of Jurists, an institution attached to the Council of Ministers, has

published a new doucment entitled "Legal frame of the Election of Members of

the National Asembly", which the Council says is the first of a series of thematic

bulletins to be published regarding Cambodian law.

The 225-page document, published in Khmer, French and English, includes international

and constitutional provisions related to elections, the Dec 26, 1997 law on election

of members to the National Assembly, the Nov 18, 1997 political parties law, and

the Apr 8, l998 law on the organization and functioning of the Constitutional Council,

as well as a number of related historical and doctrinal references.

Copies of the publication are on sale at book stores around Phnom Penh, or can be

obtained by contacting Heng Vong Bunchhat, vice-president of the Council of Jurists.
