About 9.67 million Cambodians are expected to take part in the country's general election to elect their 123-seat National Assembly.

Incumbent Prime Minister Hun Sen, who is seeking a fourth term, is not going to be challenged by the Cambodian National Rescue Party's Sam Rainsy as the latter was barred from running as a candidate. The Cambodian National Election Committee ruled on July 22 that Tainsy was too late submitting the application to run after returning from self-imposed exile.
