Statement
by
HRH The Princess Royal Samdech
NORODOM ARUNRASMY
FUNCINPEC PARTY
28 July 2008


Now that the election is over and that the people of Cambodia have spoken out, I wish to express my sincere appreciation to all party members, from the leadership to the grassroots, for their exemplary work before and during the campaign.

It was a tremendous privilege for my husband and I to be able to visit the provinces of Cambodia and to exchange views with so many compatriots, both supporters and non-supporters of FUNCINPEC, and to hear about their hopes and aspirations for their future.

During these meetings, I learned much about our people’s wishes to live in peace, with full respect for human rights, rule of law, free of corruption, and prosperity for all not just a few. I also learned that our people wanted change but it seems, from the outcome of the election, that our people’s wishes were not respected and that pressure was too strong and their desire for change was suppressed.

As Winston Churchill used to say “a country without a conscience is a country without a soul, and a country without a soul is a country that cannot survive”. Because of my love for my homeland, I earnestly hope that this is not the case for Cambodia.

When I accepted to lead the FUNCINPEC Party to the election, it was with a sense of duty, honour and dignity. Above all, it was with a sense of gratitude to our King Father, His Majesty Samdech Preah NORODOM SIHANOUK, founder of FUNCINPEC and Father of modern independent Cambodia. Yet, during the electoral campaign, I was not even allowed to mention that our King Father had established FUNCINPEC against all odds and that he had struggled for over ten years until peace, independence and freedom were given back to Cambodia and her people.

I owe my deepest gratitude to my Royal Father that Cambodia can today enjoy peace and stability, and I am sad that His Majesty’s noble efforts are, under this crucial and sensitive circumstance, not genuinely recognized and, consequently, we are not allowed to mention them when we talk to our people, whose love and affection for His Majesty remain undiminished.

During the past months, I worked hard to restore the tarnished image of FUNCINPEC to what it used to be, the symbol of past peaceful and prosperous years. I am profoundly disappointed that people have worked hard to discredit me before even giving me the chance to prove myself as a hard working and conscientious woman.

FUNCINPEC has also loyally contributed to the peace and stability of the country. Instead, we have been accused of selling out, of being puppets, etc… If we had acted or behaved in a different way, peace and stability would have been broken and the election may not even have taken place.

I am convinced that deep inside their heart, the people of Cambodia know that I have tried hard but that there are powers at work that are stronger than our humble intentions and efforts to help the people of this beautiful country of ours.

I wish everybody much happiness, good health and well-being and I thank you again for your support.

NORODOM ARUNRASMY

Sam Rainsy Party (SRP) leader Sam Rainsy, Human Rights Party leader Khem Sokha, member of royalist FUNCINPEC Prince Sisowath Sirirath and member of Norodom Ranariddh Party Muth Chantha hold hands during a news conference, as they reject election results saying it was manipulated by the ruling Cambodian People's Party (CCP) at SRP headquarters in Phnom Penh July 28, 2008. CCP claimed a landslide victory on Monday in an election bestowing another five years in power on ex-Khmer Rouge guerrilla Hun Sen, prime minister for the past 23 years.

Dear readers ki-media, it's time we unite together to support absolutely the opposition whatever its decision and the way to get out of the dramatic situation.
Khmer wake-up!

Excellent statement by a Khmer woman.

If FUNCINPEC had said and performed well since 1993, [FUNCINPEC] would still be leading the country.

This should be a wake up call to all nationalists.

The ruling party has attained its goal by cheating and stealing and disfranchising people. This is called "elector fraud." If you're with the ruling party, you oughta be abashed of yourself because your mothers brought you into this world like this. Your mothers might forgive what you've done, but the Lord Buddha will never forgive you.

Enjoy while it last, because your days are numbers -- just like your mothers have been telling you all these years.

None of these monkeys in Buddhism; they are only pretending to belive in it, but is just outside appearance. Actually in politics, doing bad gets good while doing good loses.

This saying is moving.

Dear Princess ArunReakSmey,

I am one of Cambodians. I appreciate you deeply with your good heart and intention for the sack of our beloved country. I want to remind you that you are just a game of Mr. Retarded head, Nhik Bunchai.

He knew that Funcenpec will have the result like today or more. He even knew very well that he would be ok because he is not a responsible person for any losing in Funcenpec, but Royal family. Such as he said because of Ranirith was not good that why Funcenpec lost support last election and weakening. This time, he says because of you, and Dhammiko are stupid and crazy that why Funcenpec got worse. Remember Nhik Bunchai will not lose anything including power and money, Hun Sen will give him whatever he needs for his personal life!!!

What it mean for Funcenpec, it means Funcenpec was founded by royal family and killed by royal members, it is very good game, isn't it?. If you and all royal members walked out with Ranarith, Funcepec would die in a better name, that would be Nhik Bunchai's responsibility. Now, inevitably, that you and your royal members are the killers of Funcenpec, you are the historical victims/prisoners of Funcepec, you know that???

I know you work from your heart, but remember that there are powers at work that are stronger than your humble intentions and poison your efforts. You must say what was told!

I wish you very much healthy and strength!!

Thanks

It is very disgusting for me to see all 4 opposition parties join hands after they lost the July 27th, 2008 election. Why didn't they think about that before election? Everyone of them are so damned stupid to think that s/he can take power away from the CPP by him/herself. There were many sources that wanted them to join hands to form a coalision of democrates to wrestle powers away from Hun Sen. But NO, none of them is interested in that idea. SRP thinks that they can do it alone, while HRP that's just borned and still learning to walk wanted to impose his will on his big brother, SRP. Now what do they get? The answer is another 5 years of CPP that destroys Cambodia with all levels of corruptions.

Sam Rainsy is the best patriot leader I�ve ever known. He is honest, reliable, experienced, bright , thinking. He is a man of compromise, dialogue and unity. He is a man of his word.

- He faced a weathercock Ranariddh who betrayed him to Hun Sen 3 times because of money (Ranariddh is rotten to the core). How still to unify with such a man? Anyway, the Samrainsy Party members wouldn�t have agreed it.

- And how about Kem Sokha! After his came out of the prison, he became famous and warmly welcome everywhere. Intoxicated by success, he created his party HUMAN RIGHT and arrogantly propose Sam Rainsy to unite but WITH ONE CONDITION:
THE PRESIDENT OF THE PARTY (don�t confuse with the position of the PRIME MINISTER of which he also suggested as Sam Rainsy had already done) MUST RUN ONLY TWICE.
THERE ONE OF THE REASONS WHY SAM RAINSY DECLINED HIS OFFER.

YOU SHOULD REGULARLY READ THE NEWS FROM OUR COUTRY BEFORE BLAMING SAM RAINSY FOR REFUSING THE UNITY OF THE OPPOSITION PARTIES BEFORE THE ELECTION.

Very well worded statement princess!

As cambodian, I hope your word will live and changing cambodians' perception over royal family.
Damage has been done by abusing the FREE previledge of those who have not had any ETHICAL VALUES added to the society.

In order to revive monarchy, you ought to set up a kind of code of ETHICS, and moral obligations to our citizens and cambodian society.
To strenghten ourselve for UNITY, we need to look for a reform:
a) Reform ourselve by a compulsive morality.
b) Establish codes of conducts for all levels of administration, for better management.

There are more, however these are vital to bind ourselve for objective goals, to lead the country.

The fact of the matter is we are all the same,great or small, as human being BUT behaviours reflect ourselve as if those individuals are better mankind or NOT.

With applied BUDDHISM, we will set ourselve to a better phase, rather than being in a state of CHAOS.

Looking forward to see the progresses set out and thank you for a fine expression.
