PHNOM PENH - The National Salvation Party is prepared to register with the Ministry of Interior on Monday, officials said Thursday after establishing 80 permanent members.

Members come from the opposition Sam Rainsy and Human Rights parties, but those parties will remain, with parliamentarians and local commune leaders holding their positions for now.

Officials selected a seven-member committee, headed by exiled opposition leader Sam Rainsy, which will help the party prepare for national elections in 2013, said Pol Ham, an official for the Human Rights Party who will be deputy chair of the committee.

Opposition officials formed the party after the ruling Cambodian People’s Party dominated local commune elections in June.

Election monitors say Cambodia’s election laws favor larger parties, and opposition leaders say they hope the new party will help invigorate voters at a time when Cambodia faces ongoing issues of poverty, rights abuses and illegal land seizures.

Border Committee Says Official Maps Remain Legitimatei

20 August 2015
Having reviewed a number of map’s from the UN, Cambodian officials announced Thursday that the map Cambodia currently uses for border demarcation and negotiation is legitimate. The new claim casts doubt on accusations from critics that the government is using outdated maps that make it easier for Vietnam to encroach on Cambodian territory. Var Kimhong, head of the Cambodian Border Committee, said he had reviewed 18 maps, one by one, which show “the map being used for border demarcation with Vietnam is the same.” He called for an end to false claims about other maps that might be used and for critics to “let the border committee work freely.” VOA Khmer's Neou Vannarin has the report from Phnom Penh,Cambodia.
