In the last commune election SRP stand strong on the following:
This commune election is of extreme importance
The current election is very important because we are electing upright commune leaders, and we are also improving our living conditions. Furthermore, the elected commune leaders will elect district leaders, as well as provincial leaders in the future. Therefore, the commune election not only guarantees local commune developments and serves the interest of commune members, it also guarantees the developments at the district and provincial levels for the entire country.
The victory of the Sam Rainsy Party in the commune election in 2007 will also enable our party to earn a major victory in the 2008 general election. Both of these victories will guarantee the resolution of a large number of issues at a higher level than the commune authority, such as the reduction of gasoline price, the reduction of fertilizer price, maintaining a decent price for rice, corn, and beans, the building of roads, bridges and water irrigations, the reduction of utility prices and the creation of jobs.
Removing corrupt commune chiefs to improve our living condition
The majority of past and present commune chiefs are not appropriately fulfilling their duties. These commune chiefs are part of a governing institution which pressures and threatens the population. This governing institution is corrupt. Powerful officials from all levels are involved in all sorts of corruptions which seriously affect the living condition of people, in particular the poor and the weak who are the very first in line to suffer from this corruption.
Because nowadays, those who are powerful are also corrupt and greedy people, they have no qualms in making the population suffer. There are many instances in which the current commune chiefs are abetting corrupt people and other crooks to pressure and violate the rights of the people, to grab their lands and to continuously extort their money. At the same time, these officials are also selling state and public properties to private parties, including school lands, pagoda lands, lakes, ponds, rivers, forests, mountains, beaches and islands.
