Khmer Anti-Poverty Party and the Society of Justice Party have agreed to help
each other in an "alliance" during the campaign, and a third, the
Khmer Republican Party is considering joining them, party officials said
Koul Panha, director of the Committee for Free and Fair Elections,
said Tuesday such an alliance was unlikely to sway the outcome of the election.
However, party leaders said they hoped to bolster each other's efforts in
provinces where one party was not represented but could still support another.
