Opposition leaders met with supporters on Thursday, saying the party was interested in resolving issues over last month's election and that a mass demonstration is not a top priority. "It's just the last step," Kem Sokha, vice president of the Cambodia National Rescue Party, told supporters in Phnom Penh. The Rescue Party is contesting the primary election results, which handed a win to the ruling Cambodian People's Party, and opposition leaders say their lawmakers could boycott the formation of a new government if an investigation into widespread allegations of irregularities does not take place.
