Chea Sim Asks for Understanding during the Traffic Law Implementation – Monday, 31.8.2009

The Mirror, Vol. 13, No. 628

“The president of the Cambodian People’s Party and of the Senate of the Kingdom of Cambodia, and also the head of a Phnom Penh municipal coalition working team, Samdech Akak Thoma Pothisal Chea Sim, reminded commune, district, and municipal governors and councilors to ensure more trust towards citizens who are voters, and to understand them while implementing the traffic law.

“Samdech Akak Thoma Pothisal Chea Sim said so when he presided over a ceremony in the morning of 29 August 2009 at the headquarters of the Cambodian People’s Party, to announce the names of leaders of the coalition working team to assist districts, and to introduce a plan of instructions to strengthen village leaders in Phnom Penh. On that occasion, Samdech Chea Sim said, ‘Our Cambodian People’s Party has a long-term strategic goal – it is to rule the country hundreds of years more. But whether this is possible or not depends on the citizens and on us, the leaders, and if all citizens lose faith in us, it will be difficult to attract their votes.’ He went on to say that in October, the election registrations will start. However, he saw recently that there had been demonstrations to demand a reduction of some taxes at some provinces, but there were no such cases yet in Phnom Penh, and he hoped that there will be proper solutions.

“Another thing is related to the Boeng Kak issue in Phnom Penh. Samdech Chea Sim has agreed with the development of Phnom Penh, but what is important is that proper solutions are offered to the residents, otherwise it will affect members of our party, accusing them of disregarding the difficulties of the citizens. Sometimes, the poor people have little money to afford to buy a motorbike to work as moto-taxi drivers, and sometimes, even our civil servants encounter difficulties and take their free time to work as moto-taxi drivers, to find additional income to support their family’s living. They face another difficulty when their motorbikes are confiscated to pay taxes.

“Samdech Chea Sim said that he understands the need to implement the traffic law, but also, there has to be a practical understanding for our people and for our fellow civil servants who face difficulties in their livelihood.”
