Phnom Penh (FN), June 21 - Candidates who wish to run for the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP)’s president will be confirmed before April for the upcoming election, according to Kem Sokha, CNRP’s president.

The statement came after Sam Rainsy, former CNRP president, declared that he would be running for the position once again.

“Sam Rainsy is correct because he was the president of CNRP, but the congress will decide before April,” said Ken Sokha.

“Sam Rainsy's announcement as a candidate for CNRP’s president is a violation and a slap to Kem Sokha's face,” said an analyst.
