A leading official from the opposition’s political negotiation team says more talks are planned with the ruling party.

Son Chhay, a lawmaker-elect for the Cambodia National Rescue Party, said Monday that talks to end the deadlock will continue following the latest round of sub-national elections, which will be concluded later this month.

The opposition continues to push for political reforms, following July 2013 elections it says were marred by fraud.

Cheam Yiep, a lawmaker for the ruling Cambodian People’s Party, said Monday he hopes negotiations will continue and will bear fruit. “The CPP always has an open-sky policy,” he said.
