This political party supports the belief that while illegal immigrants and even those ‘’from Vietnam’’ who ‘’take jobs from Cambodians’’ are destructive to Cambodia. The KDP’s leader Uk Phourik says he and his party do not support the ideology of ‘’anti-immigration’’ however he and the Khmer Democratic Party support and promote the belief that ‘’all immigrants’’ must ‘’on a case by case basis’’ need to become citizens only ‘’by royal decree’’ in order to live in Cambodia where they could constructively contribute to Cambodia as well.

Other ideologies the Khmer Democratic Party promotes and supports are human-rights ‘’particularly for women and children’’ and giving unlimited support to ‘’a free market economy’’ and also being unbiased by supporting and ‘’co-operating’’ with all the countries of the world ‘’regardless of their socio-political policies.’’ Apart from that there is also the party supports the belief of all Cambodians having control over their country by ‘’sovereignty.’’[1]
