Phnom Penh: The Ministry of Interior has officially registered the Kampucheaniyum party, founded by Yem Ponhearith and other former leaders of the now defunct Cambodian National Rescue Party.

The Article 2 of the official registration announcement released by the Ministry of Interior states that the Kampucheaniyum party will be required to act in accordance with the law on political parties, the legal documents in force and the party's statute.

The newly registered party is headquartered at 52-54, 9m concrete road, Kandal village, Rolous Commune, Dangkor District, Phnom Penh, with lawmaker Yem Ponharith acting as the chairman.
