The Senate (Sénat) is one of the chambers of Parliament of Cambodia.

According to the Constitution of the Kingdom of Cambodia, Chapter VIII, Article 99: "The Senate is a body that has legislative power and performs its duties as determined in the constitution and law. The Senate consists of members the number of which does not exceed half of all of the members of the Assembly."

Also stated in Article 100, 2 Senators will be nominated by the King and 2 will be elected by the National Assembly of Cambodia. The rest will be elected universally. (It is not clear though what it meant by "universally")

According to Article 102, the term for Senators is 6 years.

Cambodia's first Senate Election was held on January 22, 2006. The election was non-universal in nature because only commune councillors and members of the National Assembly were allowed to participate, voting on behalf of their constituents.
