The article reports that a threat to political stability in Cambodia stems from factionalism within the ruling Cambodian People's Party (CPP). The CPP has been an effective and relatively cohesive political machine. It is not immune from factionalism but differences have been kept under wraps by the perceived greater goal of remaining in power. A major power struggle or split in the CPP would change the character of Cambodian politics beyond recognition and could even precipitate fighting between rival groups. Such an eventuality is unlikely in the presents condition, but internal CPP politics needs careful watching.
