Electoral Reform and the Consolidation of Democracy in Cambodia
Following the national elections on July 28, 2013 the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) rejected the results, claiming widespread irregularities in the election process. The CNRP has since said it would not take its seats in National Assembly until there is significant election reform. The reforms proposed so far by the opposition parties are focused on improving the voter list, changing the process for choosing the election commission, and legal reforms to improve opposition access to broadcast media. These reforms may be useful for improving the election process, but for a number of reasons are unlikely to have a significant impact on strengthening or deepening democracy in Cambodia.
