In Cambodia, MPs are directly elected by the people. In the past 5 years as MP, my parliamentary immunity has been stripped off twice.

The six members of the parliamentary permanent committee stripped off all 28 MPs from the opposition this month, putting into crisis the legality of the Parliament. The Constitution stipulates that the National Assembly shall be composed of at least 120 MPs.

Unless there is change of leadership, Cambodia will continue to struggle with its democratization.

Why the opposition is fighting to regain its legal space in parliament

  1. Dear Ms. Sochua, the parliamentarians network for conflict prevention is concerned about the developments in Cambodia and would like to get in touch with you. Where could we send you an e-mail?
