Kim Va from Santa Ana :

Hun Sen lies in the past, present, and future. Hun Sen cheats in the past, present, and in the future. Hun Sen commits crime in the past, present,and in the future.

What needs to be done now? If Hun Sen believes in justice or free and fair election, the election needs to be done this year because July 2013 election was robbed by Hun Sen/CPP. Don't wait for another year, or two more years, etc. The Cambodian people want the new election to be held this year. Don't let Hun Sen/CPP manipulate to make CNRP to agree to delay the election. If CNRP delay the election, CNRP will lost for ever. Please don't wait, want the election to be held this year. Let play it fair for the Cambodian people.

Samath from memphis :

I do not believe anything come out of his mouth. The dictor never keep his promiss. It's an emty promiss. He only agree to the deal to get what he want.Hun Sen do whatever he want. He never got punished for his countless crime in the pass. Now even the international community seem to ignore his crime; only word no action or punishment.

This quick and dirty deal is a trap. Be very careful. It better to have re-election in 2016, the earliest.

'Hun Sen threatened to unveil a tape of the conversation between him and Sam Rainsy if the opposition leader “changes his mind.”'

This threat alone, is why CNRP has to be very cautious. This man doesn't change over night. This seems to me, Sam Rainsy said something or agreed to something that benefited only the CPP. This might be a trap Hun Sen planned ahead before calling Sam Rainsy. This phone deal was a dumb idea. It's not the same as having face-to-face because you don't have the support of your advisers next to you.

That is a good new for Cambodia people. However, if the election is taking place today, Mr. Hun Sen will definitely loose to the opposition leader Sam Rainsy. On the other hand, fire the NEC members now and the new NEC must be electing by the Cambodia National Parliament with an equal number on both parties. That way no one is able to cheat at each other. Hand pick is communist way of politic; election is democracy way of politic. The Cambodia people definitely want their country to be free and elected government not communist dictatorship or one party government.
