PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) — Cambodia's opposition party is threatening a nationwide general strike to protest what it claims was a rigged election and the illegitimate return to power of authoritarian leader Hun Sen.
Opposition leader Sam Rainsy said Wednesday he is considering calling a one-day strike for factory workers, civil servants and shopkeepers unless the ruling party agrees to an independent probe of electoral fraud and a program of reforms.
He says the opposition will continue its boycott of parliament, which opened Monday, until its demands are met.
Official results of the July 28 polls gave the ruling party 68 seats in parliament, compared to 55 for the opposition. The opposition says it was cheated out of victory.
Hun Sen has ruled for 28 years. He began a new term Tuesday.
