Sihanouk founded a political party and contested the elections himself. He sent thugs and police to break up opposition meetings and kill opposition candidates. Communists and all other oppositions were suppressed. Some oppositionists were executed by the military-the Sihanouk forces made a film of one of these executions and ordered it to be shown in every movie theater.
