Phnom Penh Governer : Free bussing for KNY isn’t vote buying

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Phnom Penh Governer : Free bussing for KNY isn’t vote buying

The Governor of Phnom Penh, who is also the head of Phnom Penh City Hall, Khuong Sreng today (April 12) dismissed allegations that the government providing free bus rides for people during Khmer New Year is a tactic to buy votes (sub-national elections are in May).

Is this only from PP to the provinces and back? What about intra-city PP? All workers eligible, or only Khmer workers?

This morning I waited for a number 2 bus along side 100 other passengers and finally gave up after one hour. My guess is they have all been comindered to take people to the villages.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Last year they did the same, all city buses were used to send people to the provinces.

Ah well that explains why I waited 30 minutes for a bus on Monivong with 10 other people yesterday.

Anyway it's free for barang too, so no it's not vote buying. You're just getting a free ride for the sub-standard frequency.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.
