Phnom Penh — Cambodia’s parliament on Wednesday held its first session since a July general election in which Prime Minister Hun Sen’s ruling party claimed victory but which critics called a sham because of the lack of a viable opposition.
The United Nations and Western countries have described the election as flawed after the Supreme Court last year dissolved the main opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) over accusations of plotting to topple the government.
