(Jakarta, Indonesia/ June 16, 2002) The Council of Asian Liberals & Democrats, in a resolution adopted by the Executive Committee during its meeting in Jakarta, expressed concern regarding the apparent bias of the National Election Commission of Cambodia, condemned the violence that occurred during the Commune Elections and expressed support for Sam Rainsy Party’s proposals for the 2003 Legislative Elections.

CALD cited the reports and findings of the United Nations and other international agencies on serious acts of violence, grave intimidation of voters and the like and on the inability of NEC to maintain the equitable media exposure amongst political parties. CALD argued in favour of electoral reforms to pave the way for honest and peaceful elections in the future.
