PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) — Cambodia's opposition says it will boycott the opening session of parliament and continue carrying out street protests now that the election victory of Prime Minister Hun Sen's ruling party has been officially ratified.
Sam Rainsy, leader of the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party, told reporters Sunday that his party would not take part in any form of government as a matter of principle until there was an independent investigation of alleged election irregularities.
The state election board on Sunday ratified results giving Hun Sen's Cambodian People's Party 68 National Assembly seats, and the opposition party 55.
Parliament has to convene within 60 days of the July 28 election.
Sam Rainsy said the opposition would hold continuous public demonstrations from Sept. 15-17, which might include rallies or marches.
