#Cambodge : Les Etats-Unis renouvellent leur appel pour la libération de KEM Sokha

L’Assemblée de HUN Sen vient d’adopter les amendements aux lois sur les élections afin de s’attribuer les sièges du Parti d’Opposition, le CNRP.

Les Etats-Unis, par la voix du Département d’Etat, ont exprimé leur profonde inquiétude quant à la dépossession de leur voix pour plusieurs millions de votants. Ils demandent aux autorités gouvernementales de considérer les implications sérieuses de leur action.

Les Etats-Unis renouvellent leur appel pour que KEM Sokha soit libéré.

 

Press Statement

Department Spokesperson

We are deeply concerned by the National Assembly’s passage of amendments to Cambodia’s Election Law today. If ratified, these amendments, in conjunction with the lawsuit by the Cambodian Ministry of Interior to dissolve the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), would effectively disenfranchise the millions of people who voted for the CNRP in the 2013 and 2017 elections.

Genuine competition is essential to democracy and to the legitimacy of the 2018 national elections. History proves that suppressing legitimate political activity leads to more long-term instability, rather than less. We urge government officials to consider the serious implications of their recent actions.

We renew our call that the leader of the CNRP—Kem Sokha—be released from prison.
