Cambodian Senate approves revised law on political parties

An amended law on political parties was approved by Cambodia's Senate at a meeting on Tuesday. The Cambodian People's Party (CPP) was the only political party that attended the meeting.

The new law on political parties reinforces the rule of law and promotes citizens and political parties' rights and duties. It also bans political parties from using images, sayings, letters or activities of people with criminal records for the party interest.

Parties will have their voting right revoked, be banned from any political activities for 5 years, or disbanded should they violate the law.
