    After the high court dissolved the Cambodia National Rescue Party, the Khmer looks virtually unopposed in next year's elections, but the government insists that democracy is alive and well in Cambodia.

    Cambodia's ruling Party has been left unopposed in Parliament after the Supreme Court dissolved the main opposition party, the CNRP, last week.

    It is the latest in a series of moves aimed at cracking down on criticism of the government.

    But some opposition groups are not giving up.

    Al Jazeera's Rob McBride reports from Phnom Penh.
