Cambodia’s feuding parties have agreed to rejoin talks on Monday, as they both seek to break a political impasse in place since July 2013 elections.

The ruling party and the opposition made little headway in talks this week.

The opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party wants to see a national election body that is approved by a two-thirds majority in parliament, rather than by appointment. The ruling Cambodian Peoples’s Party has not agreed to that demand.

Cheam Yiep, a CPP lawmaker, said more talks are needed on election reform, but Monday’s discussion will relate to administrative concerns.
