Cambodia General Election 2013

July 29, 2013 by  

Cambodia General Election 2013, Cambodia’s opposition has made what appear to be significant gains in a general election that could prove to be the ruling party’s worst show in more than a decade, according to preliminary results.

The incumbent Cambodian People’s party, presided over by prime minister Hun Sen, won 68 of the 123 National assembly seats in Sunday’s polls, according to provisional figures from the national election commission. The opposition’s Cambodia National Rescue party won 55, up from 29 in the outgoing parliament.

Hun Sen – who has been in power for 28 years – will serve another term as prime minister, a win rejected by opposition leader, Sam Rainsy, who has claimed that “serious election irregularities” should be reviewed by an independent body.

The significant gains are a considerable boost for the opposition, already buoyed by the return of Rainsy last week after a royal pardon meant he came back to Cambodia from self-imposed exile.
