PHNOM PENH (28 March 2017) – Today, OHCHR releases its human rights analysis of the amended Law on Political Parties. The analysis draws from the key applicable provisions of the Cambodian Constitution and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) that establish the rights to take part in public affairs, to freedom of expression, peaceful assembly and association. Although the Law has already been promulgated, OHCHR offers its analysis in anticipation of the next opportunity to bring the Law closer in conformity with the relevant international human rights standards, given its profound implications for Cambodian democracy. Read the full analysis in English. The Khmer version to follow soon.
