Cambodia's ruling party ousted the opposition leader from his post of deputy parliament president Friday after a controversial house vote that could nudge the Southeast Asian country closer to political conflict.All 68 Cambodian People's Party (CPP) parliamentarians voted to remove Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) leader Kem Sokha for breaking the terms of a political deal in which the CNRP had agreed not to disparage the ruling party.
