Cambodian-Americans have called on the signatories of the Paris Peace Accord to ensure Cambodia returns to a multi-party democratic system following controversial elections that saw Prime Minister Hun Sen’s ruling party win all seats in the legislature.
The appeal was made at a meeting of the Overseas Khmer Summit (OKS) in Washington, DC, attended by Cambodian-Americans from several US states.
Yung Yap, secretary general of the OKS, said respect for the tenets of the accord, which ended Cambodia’s civil war and enshrined pluralist democracy in the newly forged Cambodian democratic system, was more vital than ever.
