Great to hear news of the release of the recent detained MP elect and officer of the opposition party.
The current political agreement between ruling party CPP and opposition party CNRP on 22 July is an important start toward to many parts of the political solution and ease an immediate political tension / deadlock.
Thank you for support. All seven detained MP elect and officer of the opposition party were released.
For election reform the agreement provides promises to restructure the future NEC. The recruitment of NEC members is with engagement of the two political parties groups from the ruling party group and non-ruling party group holding seat the national assembly while current recruitment of the NEC members is only under the ruling party , CPP government. The agreement for the NEC restructure may not reach best practice and principle on public/open selection of the independent NEC. The promises also is to create new voter list while it is not yet clear whether change new system or use current system of the voter registration. They also agreed to share balance power in the national assembly.
Cambodian political groups have experienced the difficulties and challenges to implement the agreement effectively
