Hun Sen's Cambodia

Hun Sen's 'flawed' victory puts Cambodian businesses at stake

US and EU could deliver blows by taking away tariff-free access to their markets

PHNOM PENH -- Concerns are looming among Cambodian businesses over possible sanctions from large trading partners following elections that gave Prime Minister Hun Sen's ruling party a record number of seats in parliament.

The electoral victory came in a vacuum. The country's largest opposition party, which had proved itself a force to be reckoned with, was forcibly dissolved in November. For this reason, Sunday's elections were the most controversial since the country emerged from civil war in 1991.
