PHNOM PENH, Cambodia -- The Sam Rainsy Party (SRP) and Human Rights Party (HRP), which are two main opposition parties in the Cambodian National Assembly, agreed Thursday in principle to establish a political alliance called the Democratic Movement of Change (DMC) for the upcoming elections.

The DMC is a new political force to lead and advance the country to have prosperity, according to the joint statement issued by both parties.

The upcoming elections include the 2012 commune council election and the 2013 general election.

Sam Rainsy and his SRPs should not trust the sold out, Kem Sokha.

I won't trust Kem Sokha as long as the sun rises from the East.

Sometime I wonder why there's so many idiots supporting HRP,Kem Sokha. Are those pathetic HRPs really do for the benefit for Cambodia nation or it's just a puppet play.....

If Sam Rainsy and SRPs believing Kem Sokha, HRP; then they are one of the idiot. Everyone in the right mind can sense that Khem Sokha is SOLDOUT.

It doesn't matter join or not they both never become prime minister anyway. I hope Kem Sokha take more advantage over Sam Rainsy Party.

When Two Rayalist party joined,
the opposition joined too, make me laugh my ass out! The opposition parties just join and break, break and join....
Look the 2013 Sam Rainsy will not have a chance to get elect. unless he agreed to go to jail, otherwise Hun Sen will not allow him to enter Cambodia or run 2013 NEC.

1:07 - Why is Kem Sokha 'sold out'? What do you mean by this?

Khmer don't forget that united we stand, and devided we fall that is why no matter what, we need to be strong and we need to be united. We must know that the evil Hanoi wanted to see us devided, these evil Hanoi will try to poked and try to make us believed that we can be saperated so the evil Hanoi will crush us, so no matter what, we need to united among our self, but only those who stand behind our democratic principle, who are not abuse power or power hungry like one eye hyena who betray our country like(Hun Sen). May god bless our compatriot, and we will rise once again to great power in Asia.

Nothing lasts forever in politics, but common good. 2 heads are better than 1 -- they wouldn't kiss and make up for nothing. May them fight for justice and democracy for the sake of Cambodians.

I am very delighted to hear this good news that non communist parties join. We need more support from people of all colors to join to fight for change in Cabmdoia

This is not a good idea. Since Sam Rainsy cannot return to Cambodia, Kem Sokha will take over both parties. Eventually Hun Sen will buy Kem Sokha out. The end of opposition is near.

I think it is a good start. There is always a negative critic of whatever you do. I am sure the two parties will build a strong foundation of the real democracy and fulfil the wills of Cambodian people. There are many people don’t like to see the two parties merged. They have created something to try to make the two parties mistrust each other. But I doubt it if those people are really supporters of either the SRP or the HRP. On the other hand, day after day, we are seeing the movement of the CPP is getting closer and closer to fulfil the will of the Ho Chin Minh trial. I’d like to wish the new joint party all the best!

Among 123 Assy. seats, I predict this coming election will be :

1- CPP will receives 110 seats
2- Royalist receives 8 seats
3- Opposition receives 7 seats.

Royalist Divide by 2= 4 Funcinpec
and 4 RNP

Opposition Divide by 2 = 3.5 each
if SRP receives 4 the fire will be flare up and slit away... I guaranteed it!

You need a solid team, its members, Ranarith lost because of weak team. Now, there is no compareason between your team and Hun Sen's because of money.
Good luck!

First of all, SamRainsy must be profoundly braved enough to challeng Sen and his CPP, even unlawfully ending up in jail, he is still mentally and psychologically afraid, therefore he just simply stops doing Khmer PoliSick!

Congrats to both SRP and HRP to unite the Khmer Democrats. Please work the common ground, and NOT on the differences.

Dictator Hun Sen will consolidate all powers if the SRP and HRP do not wake to reality now!

I am long time supporter of SRP. I support Kem Sokha and HRP's alliance with SRP. I am sure the alliance between these two party will be stronger than one with the perverted power hungry toad prince Ran-a-rotten traitor.

For sake of Cambodia, Kem Sokha and Sam Rainsy, you must do everything to overcome all obstacles and differences. I know Mr. Mam Sonando had a huge difference in bringing these two party together. He is a great voice for Khmer people's awareness.

It doesn't matter if you put two or three parties together, you are not going to win if you do not change the way you do thing. You have to think the way you are running your business.

1. The leader position is not for life. If the leader can't improve the party's image and gain more seat, then we need to vote he/she out. You need to look at the western democratic party (US or England,....)

2. The party need to spend more time solving Cambodian's problem and offer alternative solution than pointing fault at the Gov.

3. Stop spreading rumors and find facts to support the claim to gain creditability among Cambodian.

4. Stop using excuse by saying that most Cambodian are uneducated, so it is hard to convince them to follow. If you can't even convince the uneducated one, Do you think it is easier to get educated person to follow ??? It would be even harder because they will challenge you on every thing you do. That's how you improve yourself because some time you can't see your own faults.

How long have these two leaders lead their parties ???? Would they still have the job if the party belong to the private sector ????
You know the answer to that. So, stop whining and change yourself to be better. If you can't do it, widraw yourself and give it to some body else.

San Mony Phe is one of many Hun Sen's undercover agents sent by him to help the Red Shirts destabilize the Thai government. It's a fact! Hun Sen has thousands in the US and Canada (right now) trying to divide and brain wash overseas Khmer to like the CPP Party. Prochechun Khmer beware!

picture tells a thousand words! Sam Rainsy doesn't look very sincere. This is just for international consumption.

well, if they are smart, they should change their old way, which did not work in favor of them and cambodia. if they don't smarten up or wake up or be enlightened, etc, they will always be ineffective in khmer politics. it's not about fighting, it's about competition for the best of cambodia. if they can show khmer people that they can work well together, etc., who knows, maybe in the future, they can win election in cambodia. never give up hope and education, etc...
