Cambodia’s former opposition leader, Sam Rainsy, has said he is forming a “movement” to seek free and fair elections in Cambodia.
The party he led, the Cambodia National Rescue Party, was dissolved by a contentious court decision in November and its current leader, Kem Sokha, jailed on charges of conspiring with a foreign power.
Rainsy’s new Cambodia National Rescue Movement, he said, would support free elections and civil society in Cambodia, but a ruling party spokesman said it was evidence that the opposition was fragmented.
