Political Paradigm of Pragmatism from the Khmer Youth part 91

This part (91), Mr. Sophan expressed thanks to leaders of CNRP ie. Sam Rainsy and Kem Sokha who We support the CEROChave repeated on their public speech to grant voting right to Cambodians overseas. Both leaders have thoroughly articulated on due procedures and resolutions to help Cambodians overseas to vote during each Cambodia election.

On behalf of the CEROC, those speeches are significant to push for final solution by amending laws to clearly allow Cambodians overseas with voting right to vote in Cambodia elections. As voters registration for commune election has already completed, the CEROC is urging all law-makers to be ready for national election 2018.

EU expressed worry on the assignment to local authority to taking part in voters registration following steps of old controversial mechanism. This latest phenomena is one among those irregularities NEC has undergone under the pressure and influence of government. NEC has difficulties to match between ID or voters registration files with database of citizens. NEC has obstacles to access to citizen-database as well as conduct its business independently especially provision laws enacted in March 24, 2015.

Very different from Election Committee of Canada that government and authority respected all its business operations and requests for close incorporation, Cambodia’s NEC has always been under consultations with government in all its business transactions.

Many indicators have been discussed including the inability of NEC to control over data base of voter list and authorization of different election mandates particularly mandating the election date etc.

Over all NEC reform has been hindered by the effort of incumbent government to influence the performance of a neutral and independent NEC.

Why Cambodia government has worked out many activities to get maximize control over NEC? This doubt is not simple and easy to understand as Cambodian government and Cambodia’s People Party (CPP) has no clear line of working ethics and professionalism.
