The Constitutional Council of Cambodia unanimously approved the draft law on “State of Emergency”, passing it to the final phase of becoming law.

The decision was made today during the CCC’s plenary session led by Council president Im Chhun Lim after draft had been fast-tracked for approval and unanimously adopted by the National Assembly and Senate over the past weeks.

CCC Secretary-General Taing Ratana said today that all CCC nine members voted in favour of the “State of Emergency” draft law.

“The Constitutional Council of Cambodia unanimously approved the State of Emergency draft law. They considered it in compliance with the Constitution,” Mr Ratana said.

He said the draft will be forwarded to the Royal Palace for King Norodom Sihamoni’s signature to make it become a law.

King Sihamoni departed the Kingdom early this month for medical check-ups in Beijing, while Senate president Say Chhum who also becomes an acting Head of State is due to sign the law for a final approval.
