New shift of political situation in Cambodia

Dear Readers;

It is my privilege to anticipate a new trend of political situation in Cambodia.

  1. The confrontation between Vietnam with China has headached Hun Sen to choose one of them. As the result, Hun Sen visited China and kowtowed more loan to sustain his illegal government. Those money are indebted by Cambodian people, not Hun Sen or his team. Hun Sen, a kind of dictatorship leader, has used his own people as the tool to ask for loans, aids and personal power. In the sight of Hun Sen, people are just his objects, not subjects at all. Therefore, the conflict with China made Vietnamese weak in Cambodia. As the matter of fact, the ongoing power shifting of national police commanders in Cambodia in each province is on the agenda to swap and reappoint. This action happens because of Chinese's pinpoint or the unfavorable groups of Vietnamese agents in Cambodia are working on its way to reduce the authority of former special agents of Vietnamese soldiers who have impostered among important positions of national policemen and provincial policemen divisions.
  2. The military coup in Thailand has shifted Hun Sen-Taksin relationship out of context. Hence, Hun Sen proclaimed not to allow government in exile intended to create by Thaksin in Cambodia, is legally appropriate by international law and Cambodia law, but who is going to trust on Hun Sen's flip-flop political rhetoric?
  3. CPP has faced a new challenge by the growing up of well-informed citizens and people journalists of Cambodia especially among youths who are representing major bulk of national population. CNRP has gained its momentum but this party is facing internal bonding as many experienced members of SRP are consistently courted by less experienced HRP members. The internal rules are not adopted and individuals are power-abused without knowing their own duties or lacking knowledge on their jobs. Many new elected-MP members from HRP are generally opportunistic. The CNRP party must adopt a consistent internal rules, regulations, job descriptions and state clearly that the members of central committees must obtain exact qualifications, education and position. Two top leaders have likely obtained different characteristics: while Sam Rainsy and Kem Sokha have favored family-based approach to build trust for their political career, Sam Rainsy has been seen clean and not an opportunistic or a corrupted leader, but Kem Sokha is in contrast. Kem Sokha has seen often used his position to solicit for donation from outside donors to use for his personal projects, for his daughters and for his wife. Among those donors, the Cambodia National Rescue Foundation (CNRF) is seen one of the biggest donors to donate huge money to Kem Sokha. This foundation is not only doing that, it has exposed favoritism towards Kem Sokha lonely, by rejecting Sam Rainsy or Mu Sochua etc. 

Please, keep in tune for more political update to come!
