Prime Minister Hun Sen said that a new government is scheduled to be formed next month after the CPP won a sweeping victory in Sunday’s election.

Speaking to about 10,000 garment workers in Phnom Penh’s Meanchey district, Mr Hun Sen said the Cambodian People’s Party will form a new government on September 20.

“We will form a new government on September 20 and a new Council of Ministers’ meeting will be held on September 21,” he said.

“The first opening session of the National Assembly will take place on September 19 and lawmakers will take oaths in the evening,” he said.

Mr Hun Sen said that King Norodom Sihamoni will preside over the National Assembly’s first opening session.

According to National Election Committee’s preliminary results, the CPP garnered roughly 4.8 million votes, dwarfing the two parties including the two closest competitors–Funcinpec party with 373,526 votes and the League for Democratic Party with 308,292 votes.

Based on its own calculations, the CPP said it secured all 125 parliamentary seats after garnering 77.36 percent of all valid ballots.
