Cambodia’s Ruling Party Claims Victory

In Cambodia, Prime Minister Hun Sen’s ruling Cambodian People's Party or CPP is all set for another five year term after claiming a landslide victory in parliamentary elections on Sunday. The CPP estimates that it has swept in at least 90 of the 123 seats in the National Assembly -- 64 more than its nearest rival, the Sam Rainsy Party. Though final election results are expected to be announced in about 10 days, the opposition parties have been calling for re-election, accusing the ruling party of manipulating voter lists to ensure its victory.
