Heading for a deadlock?

Total Votes Cast: 6,010,277
CPP: 3,492,374 (58%)
SRP: 1,316,714 (21%)
HRP: 397,816 (7%)
NRP: 337,943 (6%)
FUNCINPEC: 303,764 (5%)

The SRP, HRP and NRP don’t agree with the results, claiming  widespread vote rigging, and threaten to boycott the opening session of the National Assembly. Sounds quite familiar…

Cambodia Elections
CAMBODIA. Phnom Penh. 8/08/2008: SRP press conference regarding the election results with SAM Rainsy, head of the Sam Rainsy opposition Party, KEAT Sokhim, VP Human Rights Party (not on picture), MUTH Chantha, Cabinet Chief of Norodom Ranariddh Party.

More on this on the Ka-set website on monday.

There is also a small multimedia piece on khmer boxing.
