Cambodia postpones release of election results
Phnom Penh: Cambodia`s state election body has postponed announcing final results from last month`s general election, a move that could at least temporarily ease the threat of violence triggered by opposition protests.
The National Election Committee made the announcement today after the government acknowledged moving armored vehicles and troops into the capital, Phnom Penh, to keep order if a threatened mass protest by the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party spun out of control.
The opposition has challenged the ruling Cambodian People`s Party`s claim of winning the July 28 election and charges there were widespread electoral irregularities. It has said it would reject the results unless there was an impartial independent probe.
The election committee said it would release the results later because its own investigations of irregularities had not been completed.
