According to the Constitution of 1993, Cambodia had adopted the
proportional vote system similar to Japan.
The USA and Great Britain adopted from the start the winner take all
vote system. New Zealand vote system was the winner take all but felt
not happy after several dozen years, then, changed two years ago to
the proportional system.
Germany adopted the mix system, that is, half of the representatives
were elected by the winner take all system and the other half were
elected by the proportional system. Russia followed Germany model.
In the US, the Senate and the Congress were both elected by the winner
take all system. The separation of powers of the Legislative, the
Executive and the Judiciary, and the spoil system obliging the
political appointees to resign after their political party defeat,
were established from the start to cut the corners to render smoothly
the sharing power between the majority and the minority.
The majority and the minority should deal to share the power at any
level of the three branches. The majority cannot appoint a judge or a
minister or a chair committee of the Senate or Congress without
consideration of desirata of the minority. The majority cannot
dictate what they want to the minority. That was the essence of the
In Cambodia, for the 2003 election, Hun Sen/CPP won 73 seats of the
total 123, and AD (FUNCIPEC + SRP) 50 seats. In other word, CPP won
60% and AD 40%.
To be fair the sharing power between the CPP and the AD should be done
accordingly to the proportion 60% for the CPP and 40% for the AD at
every level: Sharing everything, sharing 60% and 40% the power
structure of the Legislative (President, two Vice-presidents, Chairs
and Commission), sharing 60% and 40% the Government ministries,
sharing 60% and 40% the Judiciary, sharing 60% and 40% the Police and
sharing 60% and 40% the Army. The Police and Army should be rebuilt
from scratch because National Police and National Army right now are
all CPP Police and all CPP Army.
But to get from here to that deal how to start? What is the mother of
According to Khmer Intelligence of January 4, 2004, FUNCIPEC and
Alliance of Democrats President Prince Norodom Ranariddh made the
Hun Sen' s CPP must meet a number of conditions (such as a reform of
the electoral system and the annulment of illegal and unfair border
treaties concluded with Vietnam in the 1980's) put forward by the
Alliance of Democrats if any coalition government is to be formed
Hun Sen is the Cambodian strongman. He could be the next Prime
Minister, if he annuls all treaties that the CPP had signed with the
Socialist Republic of Vietnam (SRV). If the CPP really wants to save
Cambodia, the CPP should cancel all treaties 1978, 1979 and the i980s
that the State of Cambodia had signed with the SRV. CPP had to undo
what the CPP had done under threat by the Vietnamese.
CPP, what you have to do is: Just, show the world that you are free
The mother of all deals is: the CPP should cancel all treaties, the
1978 treaty, the 1979 treaty and the 1980s treaties with the Socialist
Republic of Vietnam.
I support 100% the AD in this deal.
