Mu Sochua, CNRP lawmaker-elect

“2013 was the year of a new beginning for those who gave it all to the electoral campaign for the Cambodia National Rescue Party. Pdho or ‘change’ became the word that had a political, economic and social significance. On the campaign trail, people from across generations shared the same dream: a better, fairer Cambodia.”

Strike Numbers Swell

The CNRP non-stop protest that started on 15 December is now gaining a critical force with the endorsement of hundreds of thousands of workers that have moved towards a general strike for US$160 minimum wage.

This Sunday 29Dec. will be another monumental street protest that will put the city to a real stand still.
