Hanoi (VNA) – The National Assembly of Cambodia elected You Hockry, a parliamentarian of FUNCIPEC party, as its first Vice President with 112 ayes, two noes and two blank votes on December 8, according to NA President Heng Samrin.

Five from the party were also selected to be Chairpersons of five NA Committees, while five others from the ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) will take the positions of the rest five NA Committees.

Cambodia’s Supreme Court on November 16 ordered the dissolution of the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) and banned 118 senior officials of the party from politics for five years because the party was accused of having conspired with foreigners to topple the Government.

Accordingly, the CNRP’s seats at the parliament and People’s Councils at all levels were abolished.

Last week, the country’s National Election Committee relocated the 55 seats of the dissolved CNRP to the CPP, FUNCINPEC, the Cambodian Nationality Party and the Khmer Economic Development Party.-VNA
