Washington, DC – Cambodian-American activists are meeting this weekend to discuss ways to improve their community, but it is expected that the recent general election in Cambodia will dominate discussions.
The second annual Overseas Khmer Summit will be held for three days starting on Friday at Mendota Heights, Minnesota, where activists will focus on “unity, peace, continuity, and prosperity”.
The summit comes one week after Cambodians voted in an election that was marred by alleged vote buying, intimidation, and international criticism. The ruling Cambodian People’s Party of Prime Minister Hun Sen won all 125 seats in parliament.
