ANN/THE PHNOM PENH POST – The Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) held a two-day Central Committee’s Extraordinary Conference which ended yesterday to get input from party members from the district to the Central Committee level as they gear up for next year’s national election.
The first day of the event was attended by 743 out of 865 Central Committee members and the participation of 3,474 party members from the district to the national levels, as well as the party’s working groups.
Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen, in his capacity as the president of the party, said that the conference is widely open to accepting input from party members of all levels to strengthen their organisation.
“(Hun Sen) stressed that this extraordinary conference is being held to look at the strengths and weaknesses of the party during the recent commune council election and debate those points in order to make plans for winning the national election in 2023,” said Hun Sen’s Facebook post on Saturday.
National Assembly President Heng Samrin, in his capacity as the Honorary President of the party, said that the results from the June 5 commune election, where the CPP got over 80 per cent of the votes cast, reflected the fact that people still needed their party to lead
He said the party has political righteousness, support from the people, strong leadership and human resources with virtue, capacity, solidarity, internal unity and a clear work structure.
“All of this allows the party to win despite all difficulties and especially to defeat all the tricks of the extremist opposition groups who always block the nation’s progress and attempt to undermine the leadership of the CPP,” he said.
