On a special, pre-election broadcast of Hello VOA on Wednesday, July 23, 2003, Mr. Sam Rainsy joined VOA to answer questions from callers.
Below is a sample of some of the questions listeners asked from all over Cambodia.
1. Caller from Battambang: Would you accept coalition with the Cambodia People's Party (CPP) if your party wins the majority?
Answer: I’ll work with the best and most competent officials of the CPP, but there is no mountain big enough for both Hun Sen and I.
2. Caller from Siemreap: Would you accept coalition with FUNCINPEC if your party wins the majority?
Answer: Prince Ranariddh is not a problem. He’ll ally with whomever is strongest.
3. Caller from Phnom Penh: If your party wins and the CPP loses do you think there will be war?
Answer: I think this time the world’s most powerful country is watching closely. CPP is aware of the Iraqi situation.
