A. For the General Population

35. Granting local communities rights to decide in the management of
land, forest and fishing zones in consultation with relevant public
authorities within a framework of sustainable development and
environment protection.

36. Settling land disputes in favor of landless or poor farmers facing
abusive landlords or other powerful people.

37. Prohibiting confiscation of land, or removal from land that has been
occupied by the current occupant for a number of years. Any proposal
to remove the current occupant from their land is to be attached with
adequate compensation. It may be another comparable piece of land, or
a cash lump sum to match with the value of the confiscated property.

38. Reviewing thoroughly land confiscation in any form since 1989 up to
now. If the confiscation is deemed illegal and unjust, the land will be
returned to its rightful owner.

39. Prohibiting any dismantling of shanties that have been occupied for a
number of years. Any proposal to pull down a shanty is to be
accompanied with adequate compensation to the soon-to-be-displaced
dweller. It may be another comparable accommodation, or a cash lump
sum to match with the value of the current dwelling.

40. Carrying out a housing project for the poor and the homeless on State-
owned land and buildings. As part of a vast social program, the project
offers low-rent or free accommodations to the most destitute people.

41. Prohibiting monopoly in production and distribution of electricity. In
areas where public utilities are not available, citizens have the right to
form an association to produce and distribute electricity. The price for
electricity produced by any private entity cannot exceed a ceiling to be
negotiated with the authority and consumers representatives.

42. Reducing the current petrol retail price of 2,500 riels per liter to 1,500
riels (as at 29 March, 2003). The retail prices of petrol and other
petroleum products are to be maintained at comparable levels with
those in neighboring countries, like Thailand. This measure will greatly
improve the ordinary peopleís living standard, and help eliminate
petrol smuggling.
43. Suppressing all road tolls throughout the country. For example, the toll
levied on users of National Road number 4 from Phnom Penh to
Sihanoukville, whose building in the 1960ís and repair in the 1990ís
were financed by US assistance.

44. Issuing, free of charge and without delay, official documents for daily
need, including standardized identity papers, family book, certificate of
residency, and various permits to be delivered by the local authorities.

45. Setting up a social security system that helps all citizens in order to
afford costs of health care, and to protect their income earning capacity.

46. Providing modern health care to all the poor, free of charge. This
measure will help dramatically cut the currently appalling death rate.

47. Implementing a nutritional food distribution program (providing
vitamins, minerals, proteins) for school children from poor families to
develop their body, mind, and general health.

48. Providing housing and pensions for the handicapped, to ensure decent
living conditions and dignity for this most destitute segment of the
