Cambodia’s prime minister, Hun Sen, has won a landslide election victory, a result that was seen as a foregone conclusion after a months-long brutal crackdown destroyed all opposition.
The election, widely condemned as a sham by human rights groups and political observers, saw Hun Sen, who has ruled Cambodia for 33 years, re-elected with an estimated 80% of the vote, with his party, the CPP, taking at least 100 of 125 parliamentary seats.
