Cambodia imposes more poll bans on outlawed politicians

Exiled opposition leader Sam Rainsy is 'eliminated as an election candidate for 20-25 years'.

Seventeen members of the outlawed Cambodian National Rescue Party (CNRP) have been banned from appearing on voter lists at elections for up to 25 years following allegations they were encouraging voters at this Sunday’s national poll to spoil their ballots.


Among them was CNRP leader in exile Sam Rainsy, whose name was banned from ballot papers for 25 years by the Provincial/Capital Election Commission (PEC) and fined US$5,000.

Senior CNRP figure Mu Sochua was banned for 20 years and fined $2,500.
