Dharmacracy Party president Pothitey Sawathey will send a letter to Prime Minister Hun Sen, asking him to allow all seatless political parties to present at the National Assembly’s sessions as observers.

Ms Sawathey said on Saturday that she will send the letter to Mr Hun Sen soon.

“I will ask Samdech Hun Sen to allow all political parties that won no seat to monitor the National Assembly’s sessions” Ms Sawathey said “if Samdech Hun Sen can do as requested, the world will admire him for leading the country correctly and he is one of famous leaders in the world.”

She said that political parties that act as observers will have no right to protest the laws adopted by the National Assembly, but they will have right to write letters to the Senate, asking it to review the laws.

Ms Sawathey said that she accepted the July 29 election’s result despite her party failing to win a seat in the National Assembly.

Ms Sawathey said that although her party received more than 40,000 votes nationwide, she accepted it because it was first time for her to contest the election.

According to National Election Committee’s preliminary results, the CPP secured roughly 4.8 million votes, dwarfing the two parties including the two closest competitors – Funcinpec party with 373,526 votes and the League for Democratic Party with 308,292 votes.

Based on its own calculations, the CPP said that it secured all 125 parliamentary seats after garnering 77.36 percent of all valid ballots.

Mr Hun Sen said on Thursday that a new government will be formed on September 20 and the first opening session of the National Assembly will take place on September 19.
