The current constitution of Cambodia has been adopted a policy of liberal democracy and pluralism since after the agreement on the comprehensive settlement of the Cambodian conflict and the national elections of the people’s representatives to the National State Assembly supported by the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia (UNTAC). Since then, Cambodia became a constitutional monarchy. The Cambodian people are the masters of their own country.
History of Cambodian Constitution
The Constitution of 1953 - 1975
In the article 1 of the Constitution (1953-1970) Cambodia was recognised as a monarchy, and all powers were derived from the king (Article 21). The legislative, executive and judicial powers were exercised in the name of the king (Articles 22, 23 and 24). The National Assembly alone should pass the laws. It might not delegate this right (Article 65). The judicial organisation should be regulated by a special law (Article 113). A high council of judiciary should ensure the discipline and independence of judges in accordance with the law. This council should be presided over by the law (Article 114).
Cambodia has gone through many major changes reflecting the heroic sacrifice of the Cambodian people to protect and to rebuild their homeland, the standard of their living, and the prosperity of their future. On the Paris Peace Agreements, a comprehensive political settlement for the restoration of peace in Cambodia, were signed on October 23, 1991 by the four main Cambodian political parties, 19 countries, and the United Nations. Under the agreements, the United Nations was in charge of creating conditions for a long-lasting peace, laying the groundwork for a pluralistic democracy, rehabilitating the country's infrastructure, and repatriating over 300,000 Cambodian refugees and displaced persons. As a result of the accords, a U.N sponsored general election was held in May 1993 to elect members of a Constituent Assembly which was to draft a new constitution.
