NEC announces local elections set for May 26
May 21, 2019

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.

PHNOM PENH, May 26 (Xinhua) -- The third mandate municipal, provincial, town and district council elections kicked off in Cambodia on Sunday after an eight-day campaign, said Dim Sovannarom, a spokesman for the National Election Committee (NEC).

"A total of 203 polling stations across the country opened their doors at 7:00 a.m. local time and are due to close at 3:00 p.m.," he told Xinhua.

The non-universal elections will be voted by 11,572 sitting commune chiefs and councilors-typically along party lines-for 4,114 municipal, provincial, town and district councilors.

The elections are divided into two, said a NEC's statement, adding that one election is to elect 559 municipal and provincial councilors, while the other is to decide 3,555 town and district council seats.

Seven political parties have registered to contest in the sub-national elections, the NEC said.

Those are the Cambodian People's Party (CPP) of Prime Minister Samdech Techo HE, Funcinpec Party of Prince Norodom Ranariddh, Khmer National United Party, Cambodian Nationality's Party, Cambodian Youth Party, Khmer Will Party, and Khmer Republican Party, it said.

Sovannarom said preliminary results are expected to be announced on Sunday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. local time.

In the last council elections in May 2014, the CPP swept 2,540, or 76.4 percent, of the then-3,324 positions across the kingdom.
