Country Report
Cambodia's two biggest political parties have formed a new coalition government, ending a political stand-off that has paralysed policy-making in the country since general elections in July 2003. Under the terms of the agreement, Prime Minister Hun Sen will retain his position, while his Cambodian People's Party will retain 60% of the seats, while the royalist Funcinpec party, led by Prime Norodom Ranariddh, will get 40%. The main priority for the new government will be to push ahead with reforms necessary to modernise Cambodia's subsistence economy.
