Democracy, elections and reform in Cambodia 2013

COMFREL's 2013 report assesses the state of democratization in Cambodia. The report analyses democratic governance, democratic elections, and democratic participation. Like in the previous years, the committee observed a continuing deterioration of the democratization process, twenty years since the first national election organized by UNTAC. The public increasingly expressed their inconvenience over the political uncertainties leading to strikes, protests, demonstrations and other manifestations of discontent. By the end of 2013, deadly clashes between security forces, the opposition and striking factory workers marked a deepening political and social crisis continuing into 2014. The political development headed towards a complete retreat of democracy in the country.
