Over 5 weeks after Cambodia’s general election, which both the ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) and the opposition Cambodian National Rescue Party (CNRP) claim to have won, life in Phnom Penh remains tense. Preliminary figures handed the CPP 68 seats in the 123-seat National Assembly, against 55 for the CNRP. It is a sharply reduced majority for the CPP. Compared with last election held in 2008, the CPP lost hundreds of thousands of votes and over a quarter of its seats. The CNRP alleges that the real setback was far worse, and that the election was grossly rigged in favour of the governing party. The CNRP hotly contests the result.
