Representatives of the opposition CNRP in Canada have sent a letter to the Canadian government asking that it clarify its stance on the results of Cambodia’s national election after a former Cabinet minister took part in an international observer team that deemed the elections free and fair. Sheila Copps, who served as a Liberal Party deputy prime minister as recently as 1997, was part of a delegation from the Centrist Asia Pa*cific Democrats International, which, along with the In*ternational Con**ference of Asian Po*litical Parties (ICAPP), was among the few groups of international ob*servers to monitor the July 28 ballot.
