The opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party will continue to demand a credible investigation into allegations of fraud in July’s election, the party leader said Wednesday.

The Rescue Party reopened political talks with the ruling Cambodian People’s Party earlier this week, in an effort to break through a political deadlock in place since the elections.

But Rescue Party President Sam Rainsy told supporters via Facebook on Wednesday the Rescue Party will continue to call for an investigation, as well as a recall election.

CPP officials declined to comment Wednesday.
