PHNOM PENH (The Cambodia Herald) - The National Rescue Party will hold its first congress in early April, Human Rights Party lawmaker Yem Punharith says.
Speaking on Tuesday, he said exiled opposition leader Sam Rainsy would be appointed as party president while Human Rights Party Kem Sokha would be vice president.
Kem Sokha is expected to resign from the Human Rights Party at an extraordinary congress on April 6 and stand as National Rescue Party vice president a day later. A new president has not yet been decided.
"Kem Sokha will just resign from the party but he will not resign from his post as lawmaker," Yem Punharith said.
