Radio Australia – August 12, 2008

On Saturday Cambodia released interim election results and, just as expected, it was a thumping win to Hun Sen’s Cambodian People’s Party.

Despite the clear victory there are fears of a political deadlock emerging. Opposition parties are threatening to boycott next month’s opening of the National Assembly. But the CPP, which won 58 per cent of the vote, has warned the opposition parties to show up or risk being stripped of their seats.

Presenter: Chhieng Yuth
Speakers: Cheam Yeap, Cambodian People’s Party spokesman; Son Chhay, Sam Rainsy Party MP; Ok Serei Sopheak , independent political analyst
