Parties yet to agree on part of NEC draft law

The CEROC appreciates Kuoy Bunroeun who proposed the dual citizenship as well as 25 years of age be able to hold the position of Secretary and Deputy Secretary of the new NEC. According to Cambodian constitution (article 34 new) and the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, on article 25 of Civic Participation and Political Rights of the United Nations, all Cambodian citizens can exercise their rights to vote to influence the governmental decision-making and to safeguard their own rights. The CEROC is keen to write to the Japanese group who is wishing to help NEC reform in Cambodia by including Cambodians living abroad to exercise the rights to vote. The current NEC led by Tep Nitha, has been nonsensical during this voter registration. This same NEC has excluded Cambodians abroads since the second mandate of national election after the UNTAC. All voter registrations must be legally and inclusive to all Cambodian people.

Parties yet to agree on part of NEC draft law

Tue, 21 October 2014

Hopes that the ruling and opposition parties would finally reach full accord on a new National Election Committee draft law were dashed yesterday as talks foundered on the qualifications the secretary-general of the new institution must possess.

After a meeting that lasted more than two hours, Cambodian People’s Party working group chief Bin Chhin and his Cambodia National Rescue Party counterpart Kuoy Bunroeun said the parties had reached “90 per cent” agreement.

Assembly OKs changes to law of the land

As expected, Article 151 of this chapter says that of the NEC’s nine members, four will be chosen by the ruling party and four will be chosen by the opposition. The final member will be a candidate chosen by both parties.

The text does not specify how this would work if more than two parties won seats.

The parliamentary standing committee will be responsible for “transparently” preparing the composition of NEC members to be voted on.

In the event that the vote fails – the CPP still holds the required majority of 50 per cent plus one, which it needs to block it – the “old composition” of the NEC would remain.

Thu, 2 October 2014

The National Assembly yesterday voted to amend the constitution and add new chapters that will enshrine an overhauled National Election Committee made up of members from both the ruling and opposition parties.

All 120 lawmakers present voted for the changes, the main points of which were agreed to in July when the ruling Cambodian People’s Party and opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party reached a deal that ended a year of post-election deadlock.

The NEC has long been castigated by the opposition and civil society groups as an institution beholden to the CPP, and it is hoped that the changes will provide an even playing field for the next national election.

The CEROC is very vital in supporting the mandating of premiership to two terms

The CEROC has been very vital on the agenda for reforms and bringing genuine democratization for Cambodia. The propose to mandate two terms for premiership is very productive to end chronic power abusing in Cambodia. The CEROC is committing to stay side by side with all those who are fighting against all political odds especially the policy that protects the powerful and politicians to continue their wrong behaviors. The calling for to engage in national elections by the Overseas Khmers voters as well as to limit the mandate of premiership is the constructive step to moving forwards for genuine democratization in Cambodia.
