Detaining, arresting and jailing of Ny Chakria is a step to threaten NEC from professionally completing their task

Political Paradigm of Pragmatism from the Khmer Youth part 63

DSC_1278This part (63) aired by CMN on May 01-02, 2016, Mr. Sophan Seng described on the arrest of Ny Chakria, deputy of NEC’s secretary and other 4 Adhoc’s stuffs, and the intervention of ACU on such issues.

Beside of skeptic in abusing of power and out-of-mandate activity of ACU, the detaining, arresting and jailing of Ny Chakria is another step to intimidate NEC from working independently, fearlessly and successfully.

The Statement of NEC’s President Must Be Realistic and Articulative

Political Paradigm of Pragmatism from the Khmer Youth part 62

Sek-Bun-Huk-textThis part (62) broadcasted in April 24-25, 2016, Mr. Sophan Seng continued to articulate on the statement of HE Sik Bun Hok, president of the National Election Committee (NEC), to include migrant workers to register to vote and to vote per se in Cambodia upcoming election ie. commune election 2017 and national election 2018.

According to this announcement, it is a good news for migrant workers working domestically and internationally. Mr. President must state it clear that migrant workers in Thailand, South Korea, and many other places outside Cambodia could register and vote in their sites without interrupting to travel back to Cambodia to register as well as to vote.

Mr. Sophan Seng is appealing the President of NEC and NEC’s members to seriously articulate and implement the inclusive voters registration and to undertake the voting boots at their nearest places while working overseas. Further more, Mr. Sophan solemnly requested NEC to undertake Cambodians overseas absentee voting so that all those Cambodians overseas can actively participate in building the future of Cambodia.

MANILA, Philippines – More Filipinos abroad cast their votes for the 2016 polls, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said yesterday.

As of noon yesterday, 406,780 had voted during the 30-day overseas voting, representing   29.56 percent, the DFA Overseas Voting Secretariat said.

In Asia-Pacific, 158,250 Filipinos had voted, 72,021 in the Americas and 42,494 Filipinos in Europe, according to the DFA Overseas Voting Secretariat.

In the 2010 elections, the voter turnout was 24.86 percent (146,650) and 15.20 percent in the 2013 elections (112,110).

The law-mandated, month-long overseas absentee voting opened last April 9 in 85 Philippine posts worldwide.

Figures from the Commission on Elections   showed a total of 1,376,067 overseas Filipinos registered worldwide for the 2016 polls.

Garry Martines of Migrante urged yesterday Filipinos abroad to stay vigilant and ensure that their votes will be counted.

He said close to 400,000 Filipinos were able to cast their votes for the national elections.

A total of 376,586 overseas voters participated in overseas absentee voting (OAV) or a rise of 285 percent compared to the 2013 polls, he said, citing data from the DFA.

“The number of OAV voters is still expected to rise as Filipinos continue to troop to polling centers until the last day of voting yesterday,” he said.

Martinez said the high turnout of overseas voters is testament to how Filipinos, wherever they are in the world, thirst for genuine change.

“They want a new government. They want a new leadership that is not corrupt and cacique,” he said.

“They want accountability. They want new leaders who will be nurturing to OFWs and migrant workers and their families back home.”

Martinez said Filipino communities worldwide have persevered and overcame the various setbacks and obstacles that would have otherwise discouraged them to vote.

“Our OFWs have remained vigilant,” he said. “We have once again proven how resilient and significant our OFWs are. We have disproved all claims that there had been a growing apathy among our OAVs.”

All Cambodians overseas are entitled to vote in Cambodia elections

Political Paradigm of Pragmatism from the Khmer Youth part 61

cropped-Janet-and-LP-1.jpgThis part (61), Mr. Sophan Seng analysed on the “Cambodian voters from overseas” that are differentiated by their resettlement mandate.

For those who are living in foreign countries permanently such as Cambodia diaspora members in the United States, Canada, France, Australia, and many other parts of the world, they should be facilitated to vote in Cambodia elections. There are approximately 500,000 or half million Cambodians overseas among those diaspora who have hugely contributed for nation-building of Cambodia.

Cambodian citizens who are temporarily living oversea are migrant workers, students, soldiers stationing in South Africa, and government officials. There are approximately 100,000,0 or 1 million Cambodian temporary living abroad. Those people are entitled to vote in all Cambodia elections.

On behalf of a Cambodian oversea, I am disappointed by Hun Manet who was interviewed by VOA Khmer recently about the rights to vote of Cambodians overseas.

His father and Hun Manet seems have no political will to facilitate easy access for Cambodians overseas to exercise their rights to vote. He and his father have the same reason to not allow Cambodians overseas to vote as those reasons are typical technical issues. If we are going to discuss technical issues, we could learn from Myanmar, Thailand and the Philippines, or we can establish our own mechanism.

Intention to obstruct Cambodians overseas to vote in Cambodia elections is a violation over Cambodia Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of the United Nations in which Cambodia is a covenant.
