RIP, CNRP

Breaking: Supreme Court rules to dissolve CNRP
Thu, 16 November 2017
Ben Sokhean
The Supreme Court this evening ruled to dissolve the Cambodia National Rescue Party, ending the only existing electoral threat to Prime Minister HE’s grip on power in the Kingdom.

The historic ruling will see the opposition party disbanded and also bans 118 of the party’s senior officials from politics for five years -- including party president Kem Sokha and exiled former leader Sam Rainsy.

The dissolution comes after a sustained campaign mounted by the government and led by Prime Minister HE claiming that the CNRP had engaged in a "colour revolution", with the assistance of the United States.

Under new amendments to election laws, the CNRP will lose all 489 of its commune chiefs and all 55 of its seats in the National Assembly.

"The Supreme Court decided to recognise the Interior Ministry's lawsuit and decided to dissolve the CNRP and ban their 118 senior [officials] from joining politics for five years starting from the day of the verdict," said presiding Judge Dith Munty at 5pm.

Updates to follow.

Who, other than the incumbent party, is there to vote for in the next election? Will we see a revival of FUNCINPEC? :-?

Well that was depressingly inevitable.
Looking forward the foreign bodies expressing their concerns in the ‘strongest terms possible’.

I wonder if CNRP supporters will just be resigned to accept their lot.

The demolition of the opposition Party

Postby the chicken » Thu Nov 16, 2017 11:49 pm

While I already anticipated this to happen...

Why not Cambodia tell the world straight up we are a communist country than sugar coat itself a democratic one.

China, Vietnam etc. never hide about it and they are doing alright.

Why even bother to have the 2018 election, or the next election and the next election...

Autocratic, not communist. Odd how the word 'communist' is often misused to describe totalitarianism, dystopia etc...

It's rather obvious HE is a megalomaniac.

No surprise if an underground movement makes its presence felt in the not too distant future.

ABC news Australia is all over it this morning, I wonder how much aid money gets shelved. Dictatorship was mentioned a few times, not communism. A can of worms has been opened me thinks.
Never mind.

HE and the Kingdom of Wonder... I guess as long as China remains interested other foreign aid can just dwindle. Sad news.

Just saw Burgundy already posted about this in the news section many hours before I made this thread, I did not check. Got into heated debate/argument with the military and police friends last night over this. Please move this thread and merge to the other one if duplicated.

It's almost like every so called Communist regime ends up being autocratic and totalitarian in reality.

Happens a lot. Not as bad though as posting a 'breaking news thread' using a 4 year old article ... :oops:

Fair comment, though not all autocracies are communist.
