The Supreme Court on July 12 dissolved three political parties following complaints from the Ministry of Interior.

According to verdicts seen by The Post on July 24, the parties were dissolved for violation of the law on political parties, inaction and failure to file reports to the ministry for many years.

The lesser-known parties included Khmer Democratic, Vongkot Khemarak Mohanokor, and Social Democracy.

The ministry’s complaints said the parties had been inactive, failed to submit activity and financial reports, and could not be reached by the relevant authorities for many years.

Several political parties have been dissolved since 2017, including the main opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) in November 2017.

There are currently more than 40 parties that have expressed their intention to compete in the coming commune and general elections in 2022 and 2023 respectively.
