Early Results Point to Ruling Party Win in Cambodia Election
Early results show that Cambodia's ruling party has been handed another five years in office after voters again endorsed the long-serving Prime Minister Hun Sen.
The Cambodian People's Party has increased its number of seats in Parliament at each successive election since 1993.
After early counting, it is claiming 80 of the 123 national seats this time around.
That is exactly what the party had been predicting, and the leader of the main opposition party, Sam Rainsy, says that is because the Government has manipulated the vote.
Early results also reveal that Sam Rainsy's party has increased its representation in the Parliament.
It expects to have 40 seats, its best electoral performance yet.
Both parties have benefited from the split within the royalist movement.
Official results are expected later today.
