Pseng-Pseng: Dear Cambodian Professionals

Dear Cambodian Professionals


“Was there cheating in the election on 29th July 2018 or not?”

Centre for Policy Studies Director Chan Sophal, 1 August 2018, Campro (Cambodian Professionals online network)


“… I personally collected the results of the election on 29th July 2018 from 82 polling stations in 6 schools in Phnom Penh. I simply used my phone to take snapshots of the result Form 1102 that was displayed on the outside polling station.”

Centre for Policy Studies Director Chan Sophal, 1 August 2018, Campro


“In my opinion based on this evidence, other anecdotes, I don't think there was cheating or cooking in this election.”

Centre for Policy Studies Director Chan Sophal, 1 August 2018, Campro


“It is important to bear in mind that the sample is not a representative one for Phnom Penh or Cambodia, but it is a large enough number of polling stations (82) in 6 schools, which can tell some meaningful statistics, I believe.”

Centre for Policy Studies Director Chan Sophal, 1 August 2018, Campro


“The key finding is that the result of this sample is not too different from the preliminary result published by NEC in terms of voter turnout rate (74% from the sample), invalid votes (15% from the sample), and the votes for CPP and other small parties.”

Centre for Policy Studies Director Chan Sophal, 1 August 2018, Campro


“This finding suggests to me that if any cheating or cooking it would not have happened at the level above the polling stations. There would be no need to cheat and change such already good results at the polling stations. So if any cheating, it would have happened at the polling stations, which I think is very very difficult to do.”

Centre for Policy Studies Director Chan Sophal, 1 August 2018, Campro




Director Chan Sophal poses a controversial question, does Hun Sen cheat in the recent elections?

In his scientific quest for the truth, the director who makes a living out of research work conducts a simple data collection. His sample size is 3.8% of all the 2,138 polling stations in Phnom Penh. He sprinkles over his research numbers “other anecdotes” though he does not specify the nature and extent of these additives. And then Voilà, Hun Sen does not cheat in Phnom Penh, and by the power of his statistical inference, anywhere. To justify this conclusion, he claims on CPP’s behalf that they do not need to cheat since they have done “tremendous work in both reforms and in pleasing their local constituencies”.

The director admits his sampling is not random. Any research professionals worth their salt know random sampling is a prerequisite for any statistically reliable and valid outcomes. He believes his sample size is large enough for “some meaningful statistics”. He does not say, however, if he calculates a confidence interval and level for his outcomes validity and reliability.

It is rather amusing the director seems excited to discover that his numbers and calculations are “not too different” from those of the NEC. He copies source numbers straight from the NEC’s published Form 1102; how could there be any material variance beyond calculation errors?

The director also believes – to support his conclusion that there is no cheating – any cheating at the poll stations will be “very very difficult to do”. No, it is not.

Cambodia election threatens international financial support: Moody’s

Cambodia election threatens international financial support: Moody’s

The Financial Times | 6 August 2018

The latest Cambodian election, which has already been slammed by governments and democracy advocates around the world, has raised the risk that sources of international financing and aid could withdraw their support for the country, Moody’s has warned.  

Cambodia’s July 29 election saw the ruling Cambodian People’s party under strongman prime minister Hun Sen claim victory in all 125 seats up for grabs. 

The election came after a prolonged crackdown on opposition groups, media and political dissent, including the banning last year of the main opposition Cambodian National Rescue party. The election outcome increased risks to continued foreign financial support with a number of Cambodia's major donors, including Australia, Canada, US and the EU voicing concerns about the credibility of the polls, Moody’s analysts Amelia Tan and Matthew Circosta said in a research note on Monday.  

 If those international donors withdrew aid assistance or imposed economic sanctions, that “would hinder financing for the [Cambodian] government and balance of payments and would weigh on real [gross domestic product] growth”, the analysts said, adding that such moves would have “significant credit-negative effects” on Cambodian sovereign debt. 

 Cash from the US, EU members and institutions and Australia accounted for about 43 per cent of Cambodia’s net official development assistance funding or about around 8 per cent of total government revenue in 2016, the rating agency’s analysts noted. 

“Aid and foreign direct investment inflows have helped finance the large current-account deficit … and have bolstered foreign exchange reserves, which were at a record high of $12.25 billion in June 2018 (around 55 per cent of 2017 GDP),” the analysts said, adding that “strong growth in garments and footwear exports, which accounted for about 73 per cent of all goods exports and 36 per cent of GDP in 2016, is largely underpinned by Cambodia’s preferential tariff access with the US and EU”.

Cambodia: NEC ends verification of election results

Vietnam Plus | 7 August 2018


Phnom Penh (VNA) – Cambodia’s National Election Committee (NEC) said on August 7 that it had concluded the review and verification of the results of the general election on July 29. 

The examination work lasted from August 3-6 with no flaws detected, according to the committee. 

The committee set up a team to review and verify the election results after receiving 2,525 complaints. 

It had previously announced Cambodia’s general election a great success with voter turnout estimated at 82.17 percent. The figure is much higher than that of the previous election held in 2013, which was just over 69.6 percent. 

Twenty political parties contested in the general election. The NEC announced on July 30 that the Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) won the most votes in the election, with more than 4.8 million or 76.78 percent.

The CPP was followed by the National United Front for an Independent, Neutral, Peaceful, and Cooperative Cambodia (FUNCINPEC) with 373,500 votes (5.88 percent); the League for Democracy Party (LDP) with 308,000 votes (4.86 percent); and the Khmer Will Party (KWP) with 212,000 votes (3.35 percent). 

The remaining political parties received from more than 8,000 to 100,000 votes, or somewhere between 0.14 and 1.56 percent. 

The NEC plans to announce preliminary results on August 11 and the official results on August 15 so long as there are no complaints raised.-VNA

Vietnamese expats stabilise lives after fire in Cambodia

Vietnam Plus | 4 August 2018


Phnom Penh (VNA) – The support from Vietnamese and Cambodian authorities, and international organisations have helped Vietnamese expatriates in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, overcome difficulties after a fire burnt their houses to the ground last month.

Attending a ceremony jointly held by the Vietnamese Embassy in Cambodia and Khmer-Vietnamese Association on August 4 to review relief activities for fire victims, Vietnamese Ambassador to Cambodia Vu Quang Minh expressed his gratitude towards Cambodian leaders and authorities for giving timely assistance to the Vietnamese expatriates. 

This was a successful relief campaign, he said, adding that it set a record in terms of speed, donated money and items, and the number of sponsors.

Also, he took the occasion to thank Vietnam’s resident reporters in Cambodia for spreading updated news about the incident.

At the event, the organising board handed over assistance from the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee to the victims, with 20 million VND (870 USD) offered to each family. 

A fire broke out at dawn of July 10 and quickly ripped through 57 Vietnamese households in Ruseykeo district, Phnom Penh. 

The cause of the fire was identified as an electrical short-circuit in a house owned by Sin Yin, a 63 year-old Vietnamese Cambodian. The fire spread to other houses in the neighbourhood due to their combustible building materials, requiring 32 firefighting vehicles to extinguish the blaze.

New look has been given to the devastated area just after four weeks as new houses have been built on the former ground with more stable building materials. However, the impoverished Vietnamese there still have to encounter other tough challenge when the water level of Mekong River is rising as the result of the collapse of the Sepien-Senamnoi hydropower dam in Laos.-VNA

Cambodia moving ahead with sound goals: ambassador

Vietnam Plus | 27 July 2018


Hanoi (VNA) – Under the leadership of the Cambodian People’s Party (CPP), Cambodia is moving forward with sound goals and great achievements in national construction and defence, Cambodian Ambassador to Vietnam Prak Nguon Hong has said. 

The diplomat told Vietnam News Agency on the threshold of the parliamentary election slated for July 29 that Cambodia aims to become a high middle income nation by 2030, gearing towards high-income status by 2050. 

Cambodia also hopes to be a civilised and developed country in the region and a harmonious society without wars or genocidal and destructive activities of the past, he said. 

The ambassador stressed that Cambodian people have recognised the CPP’s achievements over the past 39 years, saying none could deny the results the party has attained. 

The party led the nation in the struggle against the genocidal Khmer Rouge regime to win the historic victory on January 7, 1979, helping Cambodian people regain their rights, interests, freedom and democracy. 

The CPP has also advanced the prestige of Cambodia in international arena, making it a unified and sovereign country that is now constructively participating in international affairs, Prak Nguon Hong said. 

Regarding Cambodia’s socio-economic development, the ambassador highlighted the annual economic growth rate of 7 percent, plus macro economic stability, especially the stable foreign exchange rate, and low inflation. 

On the CPP’s election platform, he said it has set major targets as strategies to build Cambodia into a strong state that develops based on the law and serves the people. 

Each Cambodian resident has the right and obligation to participate in national construction and defence, he stressed. 

The CPP also aims to continue with development and consolidate the fruitful ties between Cambodia and other countries, as well as international organisations. At the same time, the party will work to step up Cambodia’s activities for peace, security and prosperity in the region and the world. 

The diplomat affirmed that the upcoming election is an important political and historical event for Cambodian people as they will elect a party to lead the country. 

Sound decisions will bring about development, prosperity and peace for the nation, he concluded.-VNA

Vietnam Plus | 28 July 2018

Binh Phuoc (VNA) – Remains of 35 Vietnamese voluntary soldiers who laid down their lives during while implementing their international missions in Cambodia were buried in the southern province of Binh Phuoc on July 27.

A memorial ceremony held for them drew the participation of representatives of the provincial Party Committee, People’s Council, People’s Committee and Vietnam Fatherland Front chapter.

Speaking at the event, held on the occasion of the 71st War Invalids and Martyrs Day, Deputy Chairman of the Binh Phuoc People’s Committee Nguyen Tien Dung affirmed that locals have taken various concrete acts to show their gratitude to those who sacrificed their lives to national independence and freedom. The official also stressed that the search for remains of the martyrs in the battlefields and their burial in the homeland have always enjoyed great attention from local authorities.

The Invalids and Martyrs Day is a special chance for the entire country to commemorate millions of martyrs and war invalids who sacrificed their lives and health during the wars.

In 1947, just two years after President Ho Chi Minh delivered the declaration of independence of Vietnam, the first decree on preferential policies for war invalids and fallen soldiers was issued.
 
The same year, July 27 was designated as the national war invalids day, which was later renamed the War Invalids and Martyrs Day, to call on the entire community to support war invalids and martyrs’ families in acknowledgement of their contributions to the nation.-VNA

Global Opinions: Boycott Cambodia’s elections and Hun Sen’s regime -- by Sam Rainsy in The Washington Post

Boycott Cambodia’s elections and Hun Sen’s regime



Sam Rainsy / Washington Post | 27 July 2018

Sam Rainsy is the former leader of the Cambodia National Rescue Party and the president of the Cambodia National Rescue Movement.
This week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the bipartisan Cambodia Democracy Act to impose sanctions on Cambodian government officials for directly undermining democracy. The House’s timing is no coincidence: On Sunday, Cambodia’s brutal prime minister, Hun Sen, will seek to further entrench his three-decade hold on power through a sham election.
As an exiled politician from Cambodia, I’ve been watching this unfold with alarm. Hun Sen, a former Khmer Rouge commander, has grown more and more authoritarian in recent years. Most recently, he forcibly dissolved his only viable political opponent: the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), which I used to lead. Now that he’s running virtually unopposed this Sunday, our national election is rendered meaningless.
For months now, democracy in Cambodia has been unraveling. Those of us who know Cambodia’s history have grown terrified watching political developments that could set the stage for a return to our recent past, when the Khmer Rouge’s brutal reign left 1.7 million Cambodians dead. Hun Sen, who was part of that deadly reign, has grown increasingly desperate to consolidate his power.
While our country’s constitution defines Cambodia as a democracy, in reality Cambodia is an oppressive one-party state. Over the past nine months, in addition to disbanding his only political opposition, Hun Sen presided over the arrests of protesters and cracked down on all independent media.
Make no mistake: When he dissolved the CNRP, Hun Sen did not eliminate a fringe opposition group. In the June 2017 local elections, the CNRP won more than 40 percent of the popular vote. Hun Sen used our own government systems — the parliament and the judiciary — to dissolve our party. He also threatened and exiled me, and beat and jailed my friends and colleagues.
Hun Sen launched these egregious attacks on democracy and human rights with one goal in mind: to run unopposed in national elections on Sunday and solidify his power for years to come. Sunday’s election will be meaningless without the CNRP’s participation as the only viable opposition party in Cambodia — and without international oversight to ensure fair play.
Hun Sen is guaranteed to win the election by the kind of margin seen only in totalitarian states. That is why I call on fellow Cambodians to show Hun Sen that his time is up by boycotting this “fake” election, and on Western powers to pressure him with targeted sanctions like those the House just passed.
If the U.S. and the international community accept Hun Sen’s declaration of victory after this sham election, they will legitimize his rule and encourage other authoritarian leaders in Southeast Asia and across the globe. Turning a blind eye to Hun Sen’s rigged vote would set back the positive trend of democratization witnessed across the region, from Malaysia to East Timor.
By striking back against Hun Sen with political and economic pressure, the U.S. and the international community can deliver a forceful rebuke of authoritarianism and send a warning to leaders who might be tempted to follow Hun Sen’s path. While the House’s bill is an important first step, we must ensure the Cambodia Democracy Act passes through the legislature and into law.
Governments that accept these election results will be complicit in moving Cambodia closer to the horrors of its past and fueling the rise of authoritarianism across the globe. That’s why all countries committed to democracy and human rights should recall their ambassadors to Cambodia; introduce sanctions targeting Hun Sen, his family and close collaborators; and revoke trade privileges for Cambodian businesses with ties to the regime.
Hun Sen is fearsome. But our international opposition movement is strong, and the world has helped topple dictators before. If we band together now, we can rescue Cambodia from dictatorship.
