King Norodom Sihamoni presided over a nearly half-empty opening session of the National Assembly yesterday as all 55 elected lawmakers of the opposition CNRP followed through with their threat to boycott parliament to protest disputed results of July’s national election. As promised, the CNRP lawmakers spent the day in Siem Reap City where they dismissed the opening session as being unconstitutional and deemed the country to be operating as a single-party state.
