Cambodian opposition party names new leader

Phnom Penh

Cambodia’s main opposition party named its new leader on Thursday following the surprise resignation of its president, as it looks for ways to challenge Prime Minister Hun Sen’s three-decade rule.
Sam Rainsy, who had been at the forefront of the kingdom’s opposition movement for two decades, quit as leader of the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) in a letter posted on social media last month.
He currently resides in France in self-exile after fleeing prosecutions he said were politically motivated.—APP
