Spotlight: Cambodia maintains political stability, robust growth after July poll

Cambodia has maintained political stability and strong economic growth after a July general election that handed a landslide victory to Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen’s ruling party.

The ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) won all 125 parliamentary seats in the election after the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) was dissolved by the Supreme Court in November 2017 and 118 party senior members were barred from joining politics for five years.

The dissolution of CNRP was made after party leader Kem Sokha, 65, was arrested and charged with treason for allegedly conspiring with a foreign power in an attempt to overthrow the government.
