Cambodia's national election kicks off

Cambodian voters made their way to cast their ballots at voting stations on Sunday morning, as the country's fifth parliamentary election kicks off.

“I came here to vote for the party I love,” said Vichet at a polling station in Phnom Penh.

9.67 million people are registered under the electoral roll. The competition is tight between the ruling Cambodian People's Party (CPP) under Prime Minister Hun Sen and the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) led by Sam Rainsy who returned to the country less than ten days ahead of the elections, after receiving royal pardon by King Norodom Sihamoni on July 12.

Over 50 percent of the registered voters are young Cambodians aged between 18 and 35.

Eight political parties are competing for the 123 seats of the National Assembly, which is expected to convene in its first session in September.

In 2008, the CPP won 90 seats, while opposition blocs, the Sam Rainsy Party 26 seats and the Human Rights Party, 3. The remaining four seats were won by royalists Funcinpec and Norodom Ranaridh Party.

In this election, the CPP and CNRP are expected to win most of the 123 seats.
