Prime Minister Hun Sen appeals to all political parties to avoid resorting to violence during the communal elections.
The PM maintains that party leaders and supporters should adhere to the country’s principles of democracy.
Opposition party leader Sam Rainsy embraces the PM’s suggestion and says that campaign violence usually occurs in local areas.
Norodom Ranariddh party's secretary general, Serei Kosal also agrees with Hun Sen's appeal. He says that the government has the means to curb violence, if they only see to it.
