Prime Minister Hun Sen warned on Friday that if opposition CNRP members fail to take their seats in Parliament before the end of the 60-day deadline for the formation of a new government, those seats could be given to his long-ruling CPP.
It was Mr. Hun Senís second comment in as many days on the subject of the CNRP forfeiting their hard-won parliamentary positions should they attempt, through boycott or other means, to delay the launch of his fifth government mandate.
