Press release

Minister for Asia & the Pacific statement on Cambodia’s election

Statement by Minister for Asia and the Pacific Mark Field following the election in Cambodia.

placeholder

Minister for Asia and the Pacific Mark Field said:

The Cambodian national election was undermined by the authorities well before campaigning started and resulted in an election that was neither fair nor credible.

The potential for a legitimate, free and fair election was stymied when the main opposition party – the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), was dissolved in November 2017. This was particularly disappointing following the more open Commune elections in June 2017.

The Cambodian authorities have demonstrated clear disregard for the key tenets of a functioning multi-party democracy. As well as the dissolution of the CNRP, examples include the imprisonment of CNRP President Kem Sokha, the banning of 118 CNRP members from politics for five years, and a crackdown on independent media.

There was no credible opposition party with the opportunity to challenge the Government. In a democracy, no government has the right to choose its opposition.

The UK will continue to urge the Cambodian Government to demonstrate its commitment to its citizens by lifting restrictions on political debate and media freedom and by creating the conditions for proper functioning democracy.

Rt Hon Winston Peters

Acting Prime Minister

Minister of Foreign Affairs

MEDIA STATEMENT

31 July 2018

New Zealand expresses concern over Cambodia’s elections

Foreign Minister Winston Peters has expressed New Zealand’s concern over Cambodia’s general elections in which the main opposition party was excluded.

“For Cambodia to have legitimate democracy it is essential that opposition voices can be heard. New Zealand calls on Prime Minister Hun Sen to reinstate the main opposition party and release all political prisoners, including opposition leader Kem Sokha,” Mr Peters said.

In the lead up to the elections, Cambodia’s Supreme Court dissolved the main opposition party, the Cambodian National Rescue Party (CNRP), and its leader Kem Sokha was imprisoned. Without the main opposition party participating, the election resulted in a landslide victory for the governing party.

“New Zealand is a long-standing partner of Cambodia and has invested considerable effort in supporting Cambodia’s UN-supervised transition to democracy in the early 1990s.

“We stand ready to work with Cambodian partners to restore its democratic institutions and processes to allow free and fair elections to be held,” he said.

'Serious concerns' with Cambodian election
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop. (AAP)

Australia has expressed serious concerns to the Cambodian government about the country’s national election.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop is worried political parties, civil society groups and the media were blocked from operating freely during the poll, reversing more than 25 years of progress towards democracy in Cambodia.

The election saw the dissolution of the main opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party, the detention of its leader Kem Sokha, and the banning of its parliamentarians and officials from politics for five years.

Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen also threatened to unleash civil war if his bid to extend his 33-year rule was rejected.

“Australia is disappointed that Cambodian people have been unable to freely choose their representatives,” Ms Bishop said in a statement on Monday.

“Australia will continue to urge the Cambodian government to take steps to allow free and open political debate without violence and intimidation.”

Greens leader Richard Di Natale demanded the Turnbull government refuse to recognise the “anti-democratic and bogus” election result.

Senator Di Natale said it was disgraceful the government just months ago celebrated Australia’s strengthened ties with Cambodia, believing it was influenced by a “dodgy” refugee deal with the Southeast Asian nation.

“It’s time for the foreign minister to do more than just meekly express concerns. We must refuse to recognise the result, and call for the release of all political prisoners,” he said.

“Australia should be protecting our region’s democratic freedom and standing up for Australia’s Cambodian community who have been threatened by Hun Sen. We should not be pandering to despots.”

The minor party believes Australia must follow the United States and other countries which have implemented targeted trade and travel sanctions against Cambodia.

The Greens also want the “shameful” refugee deal abandoned.

Labor has backed the government’s decision not to send Australian election monitors to Cambodia, believing they would have given legitimacy to the “sham” poll.

Opposition frontbencher Mark Dreyfus called on Cambodia to restore a viable opposition and free press, and to immediately release Kem Sohka from custody.

“We urge the Cambodian government to allow its citizens to exercise their democratic rights,” Mr Dreyfus said.

Press briefing by the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs Deputy Spokesperson (excerpt)

Paris, 30 July 2018

(…)

Cambodia/General election (29 July)

France regrets the fact that the Cambodian general election took place without the main opposition party (Cambodian National Rescue Party), which was dissolved on 16 November 2017, while its president, Mr Kem Sokha, has been held in prison since 3 September.

The election was held in an environment that did not allow the opposition, media or civil society to function unimpeded.

We call for the release of Kem Sokha and for the lifting of the ban on 118 members of the Cambodian National Rescue Party from conducting any political activity for five years.

We urge the Cambodian authorities to respect the fundamental rights that will guarantee a credible democratic process. (…)./.

Bruxelles, 30/07/2018 – 12:29, UNIQUE ID: 180730_4
Statements by the Spokesperson

Statement by the Spokesperson on the general elections in Cambodias

The 29 July general election in Cambodia took place in a highly restrictive political climate. Over the past year, the Cambodian authorities have used the country’s judicial system and other forms of pressure to restrict the space for political opposition, for criticism and dissent, including by civil society. This culminated in the enforced dissolution of the main opposition party, the Cambodian National Rescue Party (CNRP), the arrest and prolonged detention of the CNRP’s leader, Kem Sokha, and the banning from political activity for five years of 118 senior CNRP members. Free and independent media have been severely restricted.

In its Conclusions of 26 February 2018, the EU Foreign Affairs Council underlined that an electoral process from which the main opposition party has been arbitrarily excluded is not legitimate.

In this context, the EU had declined to observe the 29 July election and suspended its financial assistance to the Cambodian National Election Committee.

The lack of genuine electoral competition and the absence of an inclusive political process mean that the 29 July election is not representative of the democratic will of the Cambodian electorate, and therefore its outcome lacks credibility.

The European Union expects the Cambodian authorities to restore democracy, to engage in dialogue with the opposition, and to create conditions conducive to free political debate and competition, in which the media and civil society, including human rights and labour rights defenders, can freely exercise their rights without undue restrictions. The EU stands ready to actively contribute to this endeavour.

Statement

July 29, 2018 – Ottawa, Ontario – Global Affairs Canada

Global Affairs Canada today issued the following statement on the elections in Cambodia:

“Today, incumbent prime minister Hun Sen and his Cambodian People’s Party retained power after the country’s general elections. The election campaign was widely recognized to have been marred by voter intimidation and manipulation of the polls. The use of the judiciary to harass, intimidate and eliminate the opposition—including the leader of the Cambodia National Rescue Party, Kem Sokha, who remains imprisoned—and to repress civil society and the press is not a mark of free, fair and just elections.

“Canada is a long-time friend of the people of Cambodia and strongly supports their right to freely choose their leaders. We continue to call on the government to allow basic civil rights for the people of Cambodia, reinstate freedom of expression and political participation and release opposition leader Kem Sokha, who has been held in jail for almost 11 months without bail.

“Protecting space for civil society and ensuring all citizens are able to peacefully participate in the electoral process are hallmarks of a strong and healthy democracy. The media also play an essential role in defending democracy in Cambodia and elsewhere. Canada will continue to use every opportunity to promote freedom of expression and political participation around the world.”
