At the 4th Executive Council Meeting of Centrist Democrats International – Asia Pacific (CDI-AP), the organization has adopted a new name, Centrist Asia Pacific Democrats International (CAPDI), to reflect the dire to deepen and broaden the organization’s engagement in the dynamically evolving political environment.
It had on Wednesday 1st December 2010 appointed Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen, Prime Minister of Cambodia, as Chairman Emeritus of the Centrist Asia Pacific Democrats International at this its 1st Executive Meeting of the CDIAP. The appointment was in line with one of the proposals which were unanimously adopted by CAPDI – the election of new leadership into the CAPDI structure. The others were:
- Renaming of the CDI-AP to Centrist Asia Pacific Democrat International (CAPDI).
- Adoption of New By-Laws of CAPDI
- Proposal for Modest Annual contributions to support small secretariat and related activities
- Adoption of the Phnom Penh Accord
The 4th Executive Council Meeting of CAPDI also approved that the next CAPDI will be hosted by Indonesia in 2011.
At the same time, Secretary General of Pakistan Muslim League-Q and Secretary General of ICAPP, Mushahid Hussain Sayed called on CAPDI to play a key role in promoting peace in Afghanistan, given the fact this country has been the focal point of conflict and a growing international consensus on this. He said that between 4 to 5 millions Afghan refugees have fled to Pakistan, sparking concern that the trend could pose regional concern and that CAPDI should support the peace process in Afghanistan.
Sayed told the meeting that “CAPDI could be used as useful tool to promote peace and stability in Asia.”
The meeting, which was chaired by Filipino Hon. Jose de Venecia Jr., echoed his support, which meant CAPDI would look into creating the CAPDI peace commission to support the initiative raised by his Pakistani colleague.
Venecia also said that Cambodia is the prime model of unification after this Southeast Asian nation went through three decades of civil war. “It is incredible to see the great leadership of Prime Minister Hun Sen to bring about a united Cambodia after about 2 million people were killed by the Khmer Rouge,” said Filipino Hon. Jose de Venecia Jr., who is also a founding chairman of International Conference of Asian Political Parties (ICAPP).
Venecia also praised the leadership of the former King Norodom Sihanouk who played key roles in bringing all the concerned parties to the negotiation table to find ways and means to put an end to the conflict.
Venecia said the ruling party of the CPP implemented a win-win policy of integrations for the interest the country.
“They united Cambodia as Cambodia was not united before,” he said.
He also praised the Cambodian leaders’ efforts, including deputy prime minister Sok An, in rebuilding the country after years of conflict.
“They lifted the people from poverty. Prime minister Hun Sen created a new image of Cambodia.”
“Congratulations! Hun Sen and Sok An,” he said.
In accepting the appointment, Prime Minister Hun Sen said: CAPDI encourages involvement from the likes of key institutions of democratic society, people’s organizations, think tanks, academia, eminent persons, business leaders, media, women and youth groups.
“All of these groups involvement will help us communicate better with civil society while promoting their significance in politics, economics and social areas.”
Thus, CAPDI can be a key tool to ensure peace, security, stability, prosperity, said Prime Minister Hun Sen.
In his opening remarks, Sok An, member of the steering committee of the Cambodia People’s Party (CPP) and who is also Deputy Prime Minister, Minister in charge of the Council of Ministers said that the 6th General Assembly of the International Conference of Asian Political Parties was being held on the 10th anniversary of the foundation of ICAPP and coincided with the anniversary of the founding of the Kampuchea United Front for National Salvation.”
He said that Cambodia’s membership of CDI-AP has been an important part of the larger process of Cambodia’s reintegration into the politics and economics of the region and the world after the tragic decades of genocidal crime and civil war.
CAPDI’s members include political parties, non-governmental organization, business community as well as academicians.
ICAPP launched in Manila, Philippines in 2000, aims to promote exchanges and cooperation in Asia between various political parties with diverse ideologies; enhance mutual understanding and trust among countries; and promote regional cooperation through the unique role and channel of political parties.
The delegates are pleased with Cambodia’s hosting of the event as well as the hospitality of the CPP.
Acceptance Remarks By Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo HUN SEN Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia and Vice Chairman of the Cambodian People's Party On the Occasion of his Appointment as Chairman Emeritus of the Centrist Asia Pacific Democrats international Phnom Penh, December 1, 2010
Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is a great pleasure and honour for me to accept the appointment as Chairman Emeritus of the Centrist Asia Pacific Democrats International (CAPDI). I am deeply grateful for the confidence in me. The opportunity to serve as Chairman Emeritus of this newly established organization does not only represent the pride for the Cambodian People's Party, but also the pride for Cambodia and its people.
The establishment of CAPDI, which is formerly known as the Centrist Democrats International Asia Pacific (CDI-AP), is the outcome of our desire to deepen and broaden the organization's engagement with the dynamically evolving political environment. According to CAPDI Bylaws, we are encouraged to get involved with the likes of key institutions of democratic civil society, people's organizations, think tanks, academia, eminent persons, business leaders, media, women and youth groups in order to establish good relationships with the civil society and promote its significance in political, economic and social arena.
In this context, the Centrist Asia Pacific Democrats International will not only play its role as an important channel of intra regional and interregional, political dialogue, but also can become a main tool for ensuring regional peace, security, stability and prosperity. Indeed, to realize this vision, a series of hard work is awaiting us.
Today, the Cambodian People's Party and I are very proud to be bestowed upon the honour and the precious opportunity to contribute to promotion of the Centrist Democrats Movement, a movement of people-centred parties. I believe that peaceful coexistence with all political parties and States on either sides of the political spectrum is the way forward for better Asia. Promoting mutual understanding between different-minded parties and States is necessary, especially in this highly globalized environment. In this regard, I note with satisfaction the adoption of the Phnom Penh Accord which will further promote not only the value and philosophy of Centrist Democrats, but also reaffirm our commitment to build a society and bring about to our peoples peace, development, prosperity and harmony based on the principles of mutual understanding, non-discrimination and respect for the culture, tradition, custom, religion and philosophy of each nation and individual.
Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,
I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate H.E .• FIDEL RAMOS who has been appointed as Chairman Emeritus, H.E. JUSUF KALLA, who has been appointed as Chairman, H.E. JOSE de VENECIA, President, H.E. SOK AN, the Vice President, and H.E. Mashahid Hussain Sayed, Secretary of the newly established CAPO!.
Finally, I would like to reiterate that the appointment is a profound honour and a rare opportunity for me to serve and promote the Centrist Democrats. On behalf of the Cambodian People's Party and on my own behalf, I am pleased to accept this appointment and pledge to contribute as much as possible to the organization and its activities. Once again, thank you for the confidence and faith shown in me.
