Who Really Won the July Election? Truth Revealed

Even this young supporter knows that the Cambodia National Rescue Party won the July election. 3 million voters for CNRP want to know the truth and the CPP wants to hide the electoral irregularities.

The NGO Electoral Reform Alliance has the real facts.

Civil Society Organizations to Push for Electoral Overhaul
By Colin Meyn – October 29, 2013 The Cambodia Daily

As the dispute over July’s national election enters its fourth month, a civil society umbrella organization, the Electoral Reform Alliance (ERA), is due to release a comprehensive report on widespread irregularities recorded during the ballot.

The report will be followed by the drafting of a proposed law to regulate elections, and a grassroots campaign to rally support for voting reforms, Laura Thornton, resident director of the U.S.-based National Democratic Institute, which is part of the alliance, said Monday.

Democratic Principles Must Be Upheld

Donor community can not have it both ways:

Free and fair elections is the most fundamental step to build democracy and congratulating Mr. Hun Sen while million of voters are still asking for truth is diplomacy with a weak stance of the democratic principles.

Non-Violence in Action – Day 3
