Permanent Political Party's Signs: Things that Cambodia Can Look Better Without Them
Everywhere you go, you can see permanent political party's signs and logos all over Cambodia; from their national headquarters to a the smallest hut of their poor political supporter. Those signs are installed permanently 24/7 and 12 months a year regardless whether Cambodia has an election or not.
Many of the signs are dilapidated and look terrible. Some are bolted near a bridge, on the sidewalks or even on narrow shoulders of Cambodia's main highways and roads. Many hardcore supporters love to hang their political party's logo or signage on top of their front gate or in their front yard. This could well deter their oppositions from entering their home :-).
Meanwhile in my hometown and home state, we don't see any political signs or logos left after the Campaign season is over and most of the removable signs are small usually posted nicely on some corners or near the sidewalks.
As far as our political affiliation is concerned, we just can't tell who is who among us unless we decide to talk and tell.
Cambodia can look much better without these permanent signs and Cambodian people can feel better without knowing that neighbors are their political enemies.
It will also be nice to hear just our friend's name without any political affiliation attached to them. Or will it?
