Cambodian opposition's parliament seats reallocated to smaller parties after ban

Pharma news - November 23, 2017 - 12:26am

By Prak Chan Thul PHNOM PENH (Reuters) - Parliamentary seats held by Cambodia's recently banned opposition party were reallocated on Thursday to smaller parties that had failed to win any seats in the last election, the National Election Committee said. The Supreme Court outlawed the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) on Nov. 16 at the request of authoritarian Prime Minister Hun Sen's government in a move that prompted a U.S. cut in election funding and EU threats of action. The CNRP was banned after its leader, Kem Sokha, was arrested for allegedly plotting treason with American help.

How One Really Big Tank Helped Save Russia from Hitler Capturing Moscow

Pharma news - November 22, 2017 - 10:07pm
