Cambodian National Assembly (NA) President Samdech Akka Moha Ponhea Chakrei Heng Samrin received here on Tuesday visiting H.E. Rady Mom, the first Cambodian-American Legislator of Massachusetts House of Representatives.
In the meeting, Samdech Heng Samrin briefed H.E. Rady Mom of the political situation in the country, saying that currently, Cambodia’s NA is comprised of lawmakers from two political parties – 68 from the ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) and the remaining 55 from the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP).
The NA president expressed his support to the constructive opposition, but not to the radical opposition. “I appreciate and support the presence of opposition party because the opposition party is a mirror to reflect the ruling party in order to revise the missing points, but I don’t support any opposition party that wish to overthrow the leaders,” he said.
For his part, H.E. Rady Mom expressed thanks to Samdech Heng Samrin and other Cambodian leaders for their support to him, and he strongly hoped that as a State Legislator, he will become a bridge to further strengthen the ties between Cambodia and the U.S., especially for the Cambodian-Americans.
