Translated from Khmer by Socheata
Four delegates of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) are currently visiting Cambodia to try to understand the role of the Cambodian parliament – which includes both the National Assembly and the Senate – in the oversight of foreign aid to Cambodia. The visit of the Geneva-based IPU will take place between 01 and 05 March 2010. The IPU delegates will meet with Cambodian senators and MPs from the CPP, the SRP, the HRP, and the royalist party (formerly known as the Norodom Ranariddh Party) on Monday 01 March at the National Assembly. A representative of the IPU delegates indicated that their mission to Cambodia is for understanding the role of the parliament in the oversight on the government, in particular in the use of development aid provided by the international community, and health-related aid
