Interior Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Sar Kheng became the latest senior member of Prime Minister Hun Sen’s CPP government to accuse the opposition CNRP of attempting to “topple” the government though what he claimed is a “constitutional coup.” In a posting to the Interior Ministry website on Thursday following a meeting with the Japanese Ambassador to Cambodia, Yuji Kumamaru, in Phnom Penh, Mr. Kheng said that he told the ambassador that the opposition was trying to oust the government by refusing to accept the disputed result of the July 2013 national election, and by calling for a new vote.
