The map below displays data on female Member of Parliaments ("MPs") who won seats in the National Assembly Elections (the "NA Elections") which took place on 28 July 2013. Out of the eight political parties who contested the NA Elections, only two political parties received enough votes to receive seats in the National Assembly: the ruling Cambodian People's Party ("CPP") and the opposition Cambodian National Rescue Party ("CNRP"). The percentage of elected MPs that are women is 20.33%, with women winning only 25 seats out of 123. Of the 68 seats won by the CPP, 18 seats will go to women (26.47%) and of the 55 seats won by the CNRP, only seven will go to women (12.73%).
