Sam Rainsy, the “acting president” of the Supreme Court-dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), released a seven-point plan on Monday to be fulfilled on his return to the Kingdom.
However, analysts have said Rainsy’s proposals were impossible to implement, while it was difficult to take his announced return seriously after he had broken so many of his promises.
Rainsy claimed he would return to restore democracy and defend the rights and freedoms of all citizens, keep Cambodia’s access to the EU’s “Everything But Arms” (EBA) agreement, thereby preserving workers’ jobs, and demand the return of land and homes to those who had seen them “unjustly confiscated by corrupt authorities and unscrupulous businessmen”.
