The Parliament of Cambodia (Khmer: សភាតំណាងរាស្ត្រ, Sâphéa Tâmnang Réastrâ [sapʰiə ɗɑmnaːŋ riəh]) is the bicameral legislature of the Government of Cambodia, consisting of the Senate and the National Assembly. The Parliament is composed of 187 members, 125 MPs and 62 Senators.

Parliament has two chambers.

  • The National Assembly (រដ្ឋសភា, Rôdthâsâphéa) has 125 members, elected for a five-year term by proportional representation.
  • The Senate (ព្រឹទ្ធសភា, Prœ̆tthôsâphéa) has 62 members, two of which are appointed by the king and two others by the National Assembly, and the rest elected by the Commune Councillors and members of the National Assembly.

Composition[edit]

The National Assembly holds legislative power. In addition to the general law-making power, the National Assembly has specific powers regarding the national budget, taxes, administrative accounts, laws on general amnesty, international treaties and conventions, declarations of war, and the formation of the Royal Government.[1]
