The inaugural one takes place in May 1993 under the auspices of UNTAC, 1998, 2003, 2008, and thepresent one is 2013.In 1993 National Elections, the Cambodian democrats win the elections and the communist party loses.Since 1998, the former communist party, CPP, has been winning; due to the NEC is biased toward the CPP.
N.E.C. is the Cambodian government-appointed electoral body that organizes elections since 1998.
CNRP is the Cambodia National Rescue Party. A merger of the two opposition political parties: the Sam
Rainsy Party and the Human Rights Party.
CPP is the Cambodian People’s Party (formerly the Cambodian People’s Revolutionary Communist Party)
UNTAC is the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia that organized the first democratic election in 1993.
The 2013 National Election is unique for the opposition party as many Cambodians are the victims of social injustice, land disputes, deforestation, human and religious rights violations, low wages,
poor respect in labor law, sand dredging, corruption, nepotism, cronyism, selling off state and public properties for personal gains, mistreatment of Khmer Krom and ethnic minorities, especially the unfair border issues with neighboring countries, Vietnam and Thailand.
