Anirudh Bhati rejects the position by some analysts that Cambodia has become a one-party state after the main opposition party boycotted the inaugural session of the National Assembly:

…it would be erroneous to assume that Cambodia has relapsed into a one-party state simply based on the premise that the current assembly is being boycotted by the opposition just as it would be inaccurate to characterize the United States as a two-party system.
