The Constitutional Council of Cambodia (CCC) on September 12 announced that it had completely addressed the complaints relating to the country’s parliamentary election.

The statement warns that those refuse to abide by the CCC’s decision or aim to disrupt the council’s activities will be imprisoned for up to 12 months and have to pay a fine of between 100,000 and 600,000 Riel (24-144 US dollars).

The CCC revealed that it had received 15 complaints rejecting the results of the July 28 election. It further said it has investigated each case carefully and found the original outcome to be legitimate.

Also on September 12, Cambodia’s King Norodom Sihamoni invited leaders from the Cambodian People's Party (CPP) and the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) for talks to resolve election–related disputes.

Prime Minister Hun Sen of the CPP said he would attend, but the CNRP has not replied to the invitation.

The National Election Committee (NEC) recently released the final results of the July 28 election, confirming that the CPP won 68 seats while the CNRP took the remaining 55 seats.

However, the CNRP rejects the results and is demanding the establishment of an independent probe committee. It also threatens to continue demonstrations throughout the country.-VNA
