#cambodge : Message clair des Etats-Unis : des élections libres et équitables en 2017 et 2018
Representative Alan Lowenthal, co-chair of the Caucus, said the group was pleased that “everyone in the House of Representatives now understands that there is a very serious political situation taking place in Cambodia.”
“And the United States is encouraging the Cambodian government to rectify the situation and allow free and fair elections as they agreed back in 2013.”
“It’s very serious … there is definitely an overt attack now by the Prime Minister, Mr. Hun Sen, against the CNRP being able to be a viable political opposition,” he said.
In order for Cambodia to demonstrate to the international community that elections are free and fair, all political parties must be allowed to campaign freely.
