Mass protests in Cambodia rekindling

cambodia-protestsCambodia’s main opposition party has launched another mass demonstration in the capital on September 15 to step up pressure against Prime Minister Hun Sen to resolve a post-election deadlock. The demonstration comes despite the start of talks between the two sides aimed at ending a dispute over July elections.

Cambodia’s king brought Hun Sen face to face with opposition leader Sam Rainsy for the first time in years on September 14 and urged the two rivals to resolve their conflict peacefully for the sake of national stability. However, no agreement was reached, but the two are expected to meet again on September 16.

Opposition leaders said up to 20,000 people turned out to rally support for an investigation into the results of the July election.

Tension over the disputed election results have intensified in Cambodia after a bomb exploded in front of the National Assembly on September 13 and rockets were found hidden at a temple in the capital city of Phnom Penh.
