Letter of Samdech CHEA SIM President of Cambodian People's Party to H.E. Mr. SAM RAINSY President of CNRP

Phnom Penh 29 August 2013

President of CNRP


I would like to acknowledge your letter dated 28 August 2013.  

Responding to your letter, I have the honor to remind you that on 3 August 2013, in order to solve problems after the General Election of the fifth mandate of the National Assembly, the meeting among the NEC and representatives of CPP and CNRP agreed in principle to set up an Adhoc Committee with participation of NEC and the two parties and with national and international organizations as observers. This Ad hoc Committee would immediately convene the meeting to discuss the mandate and tasks of this established body.

On the same day, by implementing the result of this meeting, NEC invited the representatives of the two parties to resume the discussion on the mandate and tasks of this ad hoc Committee. The CPP sent representatives with every right to decision making to participate in the said meeting. Regrettably, CNRP abruptly reversed its earlier decision by not sending representatives to this very meeting.

On 9 August 2013 NEC once again issued an appeal to invite representatives of the CPP and CNRP for another meeting in order to set up a special committee to review the reports of alleged irregularities of the fifth mandate of the National Assembly election. The CPP, in responding to this appeal, sent four representatives to the meeting, however the meeting could not be conducted due to CNRP failed to send its representatives.

In this situation, NEC continued implementing its agenda in which complaints were resolved in accordance with electoral laws and processes. Thus far, Constitutional Council has been resolving the complaints lodged by the CNRP by strictly adhering to the Constitution and laws in transparent and fair manner.

Despite the above mentioned, CPP continues to maintain good will for further dialogue to solve the remaining issues based on the result of the election and the spirit of national reconciliation which is the best approach to ensure the harmony of our citizens.

Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my sincere consideration.

President of Cambodian People's Party
