Prime Minister Hun Sen said on Friday that the door remained open for political parties that want to be the member of the Supreme Consultative Council (SCC).

Government spokesman, Phay Siphan, said that the comment of the premier was made during the cabinet session that those political parties can make a request to join as members of the SCC which has the right to question government institutions like the National Assembly.

“This mechanism remains open for other political parties to be  members (of SCCC) through the request,” he said.

16 political parties out of the 20 which jointed last year general election are currently  members of the SCC and to date, they have invited dozens of government’s ministries to explain  various issues.
