King Norodom Sihamoni on Monday announced that he would convene the first session of Parliament since July’s contested national election on September 23, a meeting the opposition CNRP is vowing to boycott in the hopes of stalling the formation of the next government. The CNRP, which is contesting the ruling CPP’s official win, says it will boycott the first sitting of the Assembly unless the government agrees to an impartial investigation of the July 28 vote, which remains marred by unresolved reports of widespread irregularities. Lawyers and analysts say the CPP cannot legally form the next government without them.
