Opposition leader Sam Rainsy said Tuesday he refused to believe King Norodom Sihamoni had officially announced the date he will open the National Assembly later this month, despite the King having signed a letter announcing he would convene the inaugural session on September 23. Speaking to reporters after visiting Phnom Penh’s O’Russei market to meet with vendors and supporters, Mr. Rainsy said the letter released by the National Election Committee (NEC) was merely correspondence between the King and NEC President Im Suosdey and did not constitute the announcement of the first sitting of the National Assembly.
