Cambodian PM sets election date on July 27 next year
font size    

Cambodia will conduct its general election of the kingdom's fourth government on July 27, 2008, Prime Minister Hun Sen said in Phnom Penh on Wednesday.

"We have decided to vote for members of the parliament (the National Assembly) and the premiership on July 27, 2008, because this day is a holiday and it is the same date as the previous general election," he said.

The current government of Cambodia is co-ruled by Hun Sen's Cambodian People's Party (CPP) and the Funcinpec Party.

However, after the commune councils election held on April 1, Funcinpec has been degraded to the fourth largest party of the kingdom, trailing two major opposition parties. CPP still remains dominant.

The commune councils election used to lay the groundwork for the general election.

Local analysts have predicted continued prevalence of CPP during the upcoming general election, but appeared cautious over the fates of Funcinpec and the opposition parties.
