Activists of the Human Rights Party carried an anti-inflation message to vendors in Phnom Penh markets Wednesday, and while they found some support, they were barred from entering one market.

Phnom Penh municipal officials have banned the entry of political parties from main markets in the city, including Central and O’Russei markets.

Security personnel at O’Russei Market barred entry for Human Rights Party officials Wednesday, citing the city directive.

The party’s anti-inflation message struck a chord with some vendors.

Nov Sreipov, who sells flowers outside O’Russei Market, said the rising cost of fuel has meant she charges higher prices for her imported blooms.

But the price hike and decreased disposable income for customers meant a decline in her business, she said, adding she was ready to vote for a party that could help.
