ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the political scenario of Cambodia as of January 2004. Cambodia's political paralysis shows no sign of ending, with the country's main political parties still no closer to agreement. The deadlock began with the country's July elections, where the current prime minister, Hun Sen, and his Cambodian People's Party (CPP) won 73 of the 123 seats in the national assembly. However, according to the country's constitution, a government must have the support of two-thirds of the national assembly, leaving the CPP nine seats short of its target. Despite continued negotiations between the main parties, they have yet to come to any kind of agreement.
