One party to rule them all: Cambodia’s supreme court rules the dissolution of opposition party

One party to rule them all: Cambodia’s supreme court rules the dissolution of opposition party:

Last week the domestic Supreme Court of Cambodia officially dissolved the main opposition party – the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP). 118 of its officials were banned from politics for the next five years, and its 55 parliamentary seats will be redistributed across the house.

The move leaves the current ruling party, the Cambodian People’s Party (CPP), as the only real party in the run up to the 2018 general elections.
