Cambodia: Rumours of a Coup

Categories: East Asia, Cambodia, Governance, Politics

The blogger at Details are Sketchy downplays the rumours of a coup [1] in Cambodia due to the extensive hold the ruling party has on almost every aspect of Cambodian state. “Indeed, the situations in Cambodia and Thailand are massively different. The ruling CPP has governed Cambodia with an iron fist for the better part of 30 years. It controls the military, the national police and every state-run apparatus in the country, from the Ministry of Interior down to the local block captain.”
