Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen said on August 2 that there will be no political deadlock for the establishment of the upcoming National Assembly and Government.

Prime Minister Hun Sen made the remarks during his inspection tour of rice farming in southern Kandal province, according to news agencies.

According to the amended Constitution, a new government will be formed by a 50-percent plus one majority, or 63 lawmakers, in the new National Assembly, he said.

He added that his Cambodian People's Party (CPP) won an absolute majority vote in the July 28 general election.

Initial unofficial results showed that the CPP won 68 parliamentary seats in the poll, while the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) got the remaining 55 seats.

Prime Minister Hun Sen said a new National Assembly will be convened by King Norodom Sihamoni no later than 60 days after the election.

“Therefore, it means that any political parties that boycott the opening session of the new National Assembly are against the King and the people's will, and abandon their parliamentary seats. The seats will be then given to other parties that have seats in the National Assembly,” he was quoted as saying.

His remarks came after some political analysts said that the opening of the new parliament needs a quorum of at least 120 out of the 123 elected lawmakers, and they commented that a new government will probably be delayed if the opposition lawmakers boycott the opening of the new National Assembly.-VNA
