CPP, CNRP set up a working group to draft rent law

Give our kids a better deal 
PHNOM PENH (The Cambodia Herald) – The Cambodian People's Party and Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) have set up a joint working group to draft rent control law, a senior opposition official said Saturday.
"The National Assembly members from the CPP and the CNRP have set up a joint working group to draft a long-waiting rent control law," Sam Rainsy said in his Facebook page. 
According to a letter posted by him, the group working on the task will be led by Pen Panha, chairman of the National Assembly's commission on legislation and justice from CPP, and Ou Chanrith, vice chairman of the same commission, and six other members. 
The agreement was signed by Sam Rainsy and Sar Kheng, leaders of Members of Parliament from CNRP and CPP, respectively.
The working group has been set up after Prime Minister Hun Sen and Sam Rainsy agreed early this month to create a law to prevent landlords from raising rent to avoid being complained by workers and citizens.
"We have to have a law to protect both sides [landlord and tenant], and we agreed on this issue, so I told Sam Rainsy and Sar Kheng to make contact with each other to draft this law," Hun Sen said during a graduation ceremony on 10 Feb. 2015. 
He appealed to all landlords not to raise the rent and continue to cooperate with the government.
