The ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP), yesterday, held an extraordinary conference of its Central Committee, to set out an action plan for 2023, the year in which the country’s next general elections will be held.
The party’s honorary president, Samdech Heng Samrin said, in his opening speech, that, the CPP’s landslide victory in the commune election last month, clearly reflected people’s confidence in the party’s leadership and political programmes.
“We will strive to make our party even more victorious in the seventh National Assembly election in 2023,” he said.
Samrin, who is also president of the National Assembly, noted that the country’s successful fight against the COVID-19 pandemic was a great achievement made by the CPP-led government, in protecting people’s lives and stabilising the economy.
The CPP extraordinary conference lasted for two days. It was presided over by CPP’s president, Samdech Techo Hun Sen, who is the prime minister of Cambodia, and was yesterday attended by more than 3,400 party members from across the country. The party’s current central committee consists of 865 members.
The CPP has ruled the country since 1979. General elections are held every five years in the country.
