Is the royal government of the fifth mandate really illegitimate?
That was the question posed Friday by the Council of Ministers in a 52-minute-long video that accused the opposition party of libel, lauded the virtues of the Na*tional Election Committee (NEC) and sought to deflect criticism of the disputed outcome of the July national election.
“Under the management of the National Election Committee, Cambodia held a general election on July 28, 2013, in a free, fair and transparent manner,” the narrator says in the video, which features scenes from election day and excerpts from press conferences given by election officials.
