Sam Rainsy Party candidates for the 3June,2012 commune election have a very clear message to voters: Vote for Sam Rainsy Party to eliminate corruption from our communes. Keep your money for your children’s future.
Corruption in Cambodia is at all levels. At commune level, over-charging villagers who need the most basic but vital documents such as birth and marriage certificates can cost up to US$20-$25. Even to ask permission to hold a wedding can boost the price up to US$50. For most villagers, this means selling chickens and pigs and even cows in order to get their commune chiefs to provide them with these documents. Officially, a birth certificate is free for the first 30 days. A marriage certificate costs US$1.00.
We make the promis e-we deliver.
Sam Rainsy Party won 28 communes in 2007. These are clean communes.
