Sam Rainsy, SRP President, named Phnom Penh MP Yim Sovann as the new SRP spokesman, replacing his colleague Son Chhay. The decision was made during a meeting of the party permanent committee held on 05 Feb. Very well known within the SRP, Son Chhay did not provide any comment on this change.
Furthermore, Ke Sonannaroth, SRP MP from Banteay Meanchey, who was previously the party standing General-secretary shortly after Eng Chhay Eang’s resignation, was officially confirmed as the permanent party secretary-general. The SRP reorganization marks its will to strengthen itself up in preparation for the upcoming election of municipal, provincial, commune and district councilors which will be held on 17 May 2009.
