“Now, we have 20 political parties registered, this shows a multi-party democracy,” NEC spokesman Dim Sovannarom told a news briefing.

 

 

Prime Minister of Cambodia, Academician HUN SEN had insured an open and competitive climate for the July 2018 elections earning him global plaudits

 

 

“This is an opportunity for people, in every five years, to chose their leaders,” he added.

 

Twenty political parties registered to participate in the upcoming national election in July as the 15-day window to register candidates came to an end yesterday.

Dim Sovannarom, spokesman for the National Election Committee, said during a press conference yesterday that 20 political parties have registered to contest the election on July 29.

“In total, 20 political parties have registered at the NEC,” Mr Sovannarom said. “The NEC will carry out its duty according to the law to ensure the electoral process is free and fair.”

Mr Sovannarom said that four political parties, Cambodian People’s Party, Cambodian Youth Party, Cambodian Nationality Party and Khmer National United Party, were officially recognized by the NEC so far.

 

He said that the NEC will follow its procedure to review the documents of the other 16 political parties that have registered.
