Immediately after the Vietnamese invasion to end the Cambodian genocide, the People's Republic of Kampuchea was set up.
The Vietnamese gave power to the former KCP, the Red Khmer, that disagreed with the policies of Pol Pot and established a state with the aim - and I quote: of achieving socialism.
So I fail to see how the Vietnamese were in any way responsible of reestablishing the monarchy in Cambodia, that was rather during the 90s, when the Vietnamese finally left Cambodia and elections were held, with the FUNCINPEC winning, they are a royalist party and are responsible for reestablishing the government.

But please do correct me if I have just misunderstood your question.

I've always wondered: Is the Cambodian People's Party still progressive?

During the 80s it basically became reformist. It turned to a free market economy and allowed privat property.
In comparison with the FUNCINPEC they are very progressive, but so are the Democrats in comparison to the Republicans.

EDIT: Take a look at this quote from their official site:
Quote:
The Cambodian People's Patty accepts the multi-party and liberal democratic system as the fundamental basis of the its policy and activities

(my own emphasis)
