Cambodia PM Hun Sen’s party claims ‘landslide’ in flawed election

Critics described the election as the least free and fair in decades due to exclusion of main opposition party.

Prime Minister Hun Sen’s Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) has claimed a “landslide” victory in national elections described by critics as the country’s least free and fair vote in decades.


“We’ve won a landslide victory but so far there is no clear figures yet [on seats won],” said Sok Eysan, spokesperson for the CPP, just hours after polls closed on Sunday.

The claim of an election walkover by the governing party followed after Hun Sen said voter turnout hit 84 percent on Sunday.
