Hun Sen’s ruling Cambodian People’s Party  is set to win all 125 parliamentary seats — cementing the country’s status as a one-party state — after the main opposition party was barred from contesting Sunday’s poll.

But the prime minister, who has ruled for 33 years, swept aside questions over the ballot’s legitimacy in a celebratory Facebook post on Tuesday.

“Cambodia decided the fate of the nation through a free, fair and just election,” he wrote.

Rights groups accused Hun Sen of wiping out his political opposition, choking free press and stamping out activism in the lead up to the poll.

Opposition figures had called for a voting boycott with a “clean finger” campaign, which election authorities said failed with an estimated 82 percent turnout and 6.3 million votes cast.

But in a sign of pushback from unhappy voters, around 600,000 ballots were spoiled.

In his post Tuesday, Hun Sen said citizens cast their ballots “without pressure or being forced”, thanking voters for supporting the CPP.

Official results are expected on August 15.
