Phnom Penh (FN), Dec. 19 - Former lawmaker of the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), Mao Monyvann, opposed Sam Rainsy's insult on Kem Sokha, calling the actions immoral and lacked of humanity.

"What I oppose Sam Rainsy is he took Kem Sokha as a bet with Prime Minister Hun Sen, which is an unacceptable and immoral act,” Mao Monyvann told Radio Free Asia, a radio supporting Sam Rainsy.

"Another point is the appointment of Rainsy at the December Conference held in Atlanta, Georgia where Rainsy was elected as Acting President of the dissolved CNRP,” he added.

Following the appointment of Sam Rainsy as the Acting President, Kem Sokha, president of the dissolved CNRP rejected the result. Sokha’s daughters and CNRP-USA also did. They called the conference a further disunity of the dissolved opposition party.

Kem Monovithya called the appointment “party revolution” speaking in an interview with RFI in early December.

“We are deeply saddened, not because of his Acting President position, but saddened by the procedures of the appointment.”

Besides opposing Sam Rainsy’s actions, Monyvann claimed that if the exiled Rainsy dared to return home, he will ensure that Sam Rainsy be legally appointed as the party’s president in accordance with the by-laws.
