The Khmer National Liberation Front (KNLF) – a group claiming to be Cambodia’s “government in exile”, led by Sam Serey – is set to register as a legitimate political party later this month, after its members collected more than 5,000 thumbprints, its spokesman Thuy Vy said on Tuesday.
The thumbprints collection came after the government announced it welcomed the KNLF registering as a new party, with Council of Ministers spokesman Phay Siphan last month saying he believed it was the “right thing”.
“We officially decided earlier last year that next week, the KNLF will submit the collected documents and about 5,000 thumbprints for the party’s registration to the Ministry of Interior,” he said.
