National Assembly ‘has enough seats’

The Council of Ministers on Friday decided not to increase the number of seats in the National Assembly for the fifth mandate, maintaining the number at 123.

This number of seats in the National Assembly is supposed to be determined by geography, society, the economy and, importantly, the population in the Kingdom.

Phay Siphan, spokesman for the Council of Ministers, said the decision to keep the number at 123 seats is aligned with the current social and economic situation of Cambodia, which is still recovering from the impact of the global economic crisis and effects from serious flooding.
