CNRP in the house

They held out for more than ten months hoping to force the government into making real reforms but on Friday, Cambodia's opposition finally took their seats in parliament.

In something of a departure from the past, Friday's session was a largely civil affair, albeit with some customary ribbing.

The CNRP's decision to join came after their leader Sam Rainsy and Prime Minister Hun Sen struck a deal last month that included the overhaul of Cambodia's National Election Committee.

Rainsy says the deal is no sell out but many of his party faithful remain highly skeptical and those observing or guiding the new agreement say there are many tests to come of this fragile new political dynamic.
