NEC announces local elections set for May 26

The National Election Committee (NEC) has announced that the upcoming third mandate municipal, provincial, town and district council elections will be held on May 26.

Seven political parties are to participate. Those without councillors eligible to vote were still able to take part in polls that one party president said would “make Cambodian democracy vibrant”.

National Election Committee (NEC) spokesperson Hang Puthea said on Sunday that the elections were important as Cambodia is on the path of democracy, where power comes from citizens who follow the performance of the government.
