 A day after Cambodians voted in the July 29 general election, the ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) claimed it swept all 125 parliamentary seats, even as critics said the election wasn’t free or fair.
 “The CPP won 77.5 percent of the votes and won all the parliamentary seats,” CPP spokesman Sok Eysan said by telephone. “The other parties won no seats.”
 Cambodia woke to another chapter of strongman rule by Prime Minister Hun Sen on July 30, a day after an election that was heavily criticized by rights groups, the United States and other Western countries.
 Critics say the election was a step back for democracy in Cambodia following the dissolution last year of the main opposition Cambodian National Rescue Party (CNRP) and the jailing of its leader, Kem Sokha, on treason charges.
 “29 July 2018 marked the death of democracy in Cambodia, a dark new day in recent history,” said CNRP Vice President Mu Sochua.
 Western countries have threatened sanctions and visa restrictions on government officials. (Reuters)
