Phnom Penh (FN), Mar 24 – Minister of the Interior, Sar Kheng, has appointed a representative to discuss the Cambodian National Rescue Party's (CNRP) violation of the Political Party Criteria.

The discourse is scheduled to take place next Wednesday at 2:30 P.M, according to a letter from the Ministry of Interior (MoI)’s that was addressed to the CNRP on Friday.

Prak Som Oeun, the Director General of the General Department of Administration, has been appointed to discuss the non-political technicality with the CNRP.

The appointment was made in response to an official request from the CNRP to meet with Sar Kheng and have him explain the illegitimacy of the CNRP’s extraordinary congress and the selection of the CNRP’s new president.

Neng Nat, CNRP's Standing Committee member, issued an open letter on Thursday requesting Kem Sokha to resign his presidency, as the CNRP’s extraordinary congress violated political party’s criteria.

"Political party's criteria prevails all law in the party that we must follow. Everybody knows clearly that CNRP's congress on choosing new leaders in the party has been done untimely without firm support from the majority of CNRP's members," Neng Nat wrote in the letter.
