Sam Rainsy CambodiaThe opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) on September 28 announced that it would launch a mass protest on October 23 in order to submit a petition to the United Nations.

“A mass protest will be held on October 23 from 3:00-6:00 pm at the Freedom Park in Phnom Penh in order to submit a petition to the United Nations and signatory countries of the Paris Accord through the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Office to Cambodia,” the CNRP said in a statement.

The statement said that prior to the mass demonstration, the CNRP would organise a public congress at the Freedom Park on October 6 in order to decide the party’s stance.

The Cambodian parliament, formed by the ruling party’s 68 lawmakers, on September 24 voted for the formation of a new government under the leadership of Prime Minister Hun Sen even though the opposition’s 55 legislators boycotted the session since it refused to accept the results of the July 28 election.

CNRP leader Sam Rainsy said that his party did not recognise the Hun Sen-led government, claiming that the newly- formed government was a violation of the constitution.

He warned to call a nationwide general strike for factory workers, civil servants and shopkeepers if the ruling party did not agree to an independent poll probe committee to look into alleged electoral fraud.

Also, he called on the international community to condemn the government and urged big foreign companies not to sign any agreements with Cambodia.
