The Cambodian People's Party (CPP) took the lead in the polling of the fourth general election of Cambodia Sunday, taking some two thirds of the 123 seats at the National Assembly, senior CPP officials said.
CPP could take 80 to 89 seats and the major opposition Sam Rainsy Party (SRP) around 30, said CPP sources.
CPP spokesman Khieu Kanharith also confirmed the ratio.
However, NGOs and supervising bodies estimated that CPP won over 70 seats and SRP some 50.
The national television station TVK, authorized by the National Election Committee (NEC), has started to broadcast preliminary official results province by province.
In Koah Kong province, CPP won over 70 percent of the votes, it said.
