The National Election Committee has tonight announced that the ruling CPP secured all 125 parliamentary seats in the national election last month.

The voter turnout was 83.02 percent and there were 6,956,900 valid votes, with the CPP garnering 4,889,113, 77.36 percent.

The three closest competitors were Funcinpec with 374,510 votes, the League for Democracy Party with 309,364 votes, and the Khmer Will Party with 212,869 votes.

After the election result was announced, the ruling CPP released a statement acknowledging its resounding victory.

“The CPP regrets that a number of foreign communities did not observe the election process … and accused the election of not being free or fair,” the statement added.

“This attitude is strongly insulting to the nearly seven million voters that casted ballots and it does not benefit the development of democracy and peace in Cambodia.”
