Ruling party holds extraordinary congress

The ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) convened its extraordinary congress to set out a strategic plan to secure victory in the upcoming general election, said the party’s Honorary President Samdech Heng Samrin.

Speaking in his opening speech, Samrin said the CPP is a solid foundation supporting long-term peace and development in the South-East Asian nation.

“We really have a lot of work to do in the future, and we must do our best to win the seventh National Assembly election on July 23, 2023,” he said.

Samrin, who is also president of the National Assembly, said the congress would approve a new political programme for the party to carry forward for five years from 2023 to 2028.

The two-day congress was presided over by the CPP’s president Samdech Techo Hun Sen, who is the prime minister of Cambodia, and was attended by some 3,558 party members from across the country. — Xinhua
