PRESIDENT ANTON CARAGEA ANNOUNCES HIS PRIORITIES AS THE HEAD OF ELECTION OBSERVATION TEAM IN CAMBODIA 2018

Professor Dr. Anton Caragea, Head of International Observers Team for Cambodia 2018 Elections, launched the mission at a press conference on 4 July, stressing the importance of Cambodia’s parliamentary elections for the country’s stability.

On this occasion the official launch of the website of Election Observation Mission for Cambodia has taken place.

Professor Dr. Anton Caragea explained all that World Elections  Monitors Organization (WEMO) Observation Missions use a common methodology underpinned by the principles of impartiality, objectivity, independence and non-interference. ‘’International Election Observation Missions are responsible for their own conclusions and do not receive instructions neither from the European institutions nor by member states’ governments.’’.

The Head of International Observers Team detailed the long-term monitoring methodology.

The election observation mission for the Kingdom of Cambodia 2018 will cover the political campaign, pre-election preparations, election day – polling, counting and tabulation of results – and the complaints and appeals process as well as the announcement of results.

This will include a thorough analysis of the legal framework, the work of the election administration, campaign activities, the conduct of the media in covering the elections, and the mechanisms for electoral disputes.

The mission will meet election stakeholders, including government officials, election administration bodies, candidates and representatives from political parties, members of civil society and the media, the judiciary, amongst others.

Shortly after election day, the mission will issue a statement containing its preliminary findings.

A final report, including a comprehensive assessment of all aspects of the electoral process and with possible recommendations for future elections, will be released several weeks later announced Professor Dr. Anton Caragea.

Elections observers pose for a photo with the Head of International Electoral Observation Team- President Dr. Anton Caragea.

 

 

How do you make an observation mission?

 Election observation gives the opportunity to assess an electoral process according to international standards. The members of World Electors Monitors Organization (WEMO) are leading global actors in providing technical electoral assistance complementary to election observation.

This dual form of election support constitutes a significant contribution to the promotion of governance and development objectives.

What is an observation mission?

An observation mission assesses all aspects of the electoral process, its constitutional and legal framework, the delimitation of constituencies, the registration of voters and candidates, the training of election staff, voter education, media coverage, the campaign and the preparations for election day, as well as the appeals process.

 

On election day, observers visit pooling stations in order to observe the opening, voting, counting and aggregation of results.

What are the principles of an electoral monitoring mission?

Its fundamental principles are full coverage, impartiality, transparency and professionalism. Its ultimate objective is to become superfluous by entrenching democracy deep within each nation through the development of national capacities.

 

Its main goals are the legitimization of an electoral process, where appropriate, and the enhancement of public confidence in the electoral process to deter fraud, to strengthen respect for human rights, and to contribute to conflict resolution.

H.M. KING NORODOM SIHAMONI WEIGHTS IN: CAMBODIA IS HAVING FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS!

In front of a media slur and outrageous misinformation campaign, destined to taint  Cambodia`s people and authorities determination to host free, equal opportunity and transparent elections, His Majesty King Norodom Sihamoni has the final say, closing any honest debate on the subject: The Kingdom will enjoy free and fair elections and the people of Cambodia will have the full opportunity to express their views and decision for the country direction and leadership.

 

The royal message writes that:

“On this occasion, I would like to solemnly call for all eligible voters to cast their ballots in order to elect national leaders for development and glorious progress in all fields”.

 

 

His Majesty King Norodom Sihamoni ends the debate for any honest observer of Kingdom`s politics: 2018 elections will be democratic and exemplary.

 

 

The monarch said the forthcoming election is a free, fair, and confidential election that goes with the liberal multi-party democracy, so the voters should not worry about any pressure or intimidation from anyone or any political party.

“I urge all the compatriots to exercise your rights to vote in according to your own conscience and to freely elect any candidate, any political party that you trust,” King Sihamoni said in a royal message released to the media.

Earlier the international community also praised the election preparations in regard to an outstanding PRESS CODE offering unequal access to the media and citizens to the information and enshrining election transparency as the main factor in these elections and to the regulation for international and national observers that has assured a perfect control of the elections process.

Finally, the Council of Ministers’ Press and Quick Reaction Unit has released a video announcing that the July 29 national elections would be regarded as the “best” in Cambodia’s history.

The 14-minute documentary, titled Will the July general election be liberal, pluralistic, and democratic? draws on four points to reach its conclusion.

The election process would be smooth and free, multiparty, open to observers and without violence, the video says.

Noting that there are 20 political parties vying in the elections despite the country only having eight million voters, the video says: “Cambodia is setting another good example for other countries in terms of pluralism, which is the basic principle of a democratic election.”

“In brief,” in continues, “the general election scheduled for July 29, could be considered one of the best elections in Cambodia’s history.

“Best election in the sense that this election will be held with the participation of so many political parties coupled with strict implementation of three main principles – being liberal, pluralistic, and democratic – principles that are the best foundation for an election.

“Last but not least, this coming election will be conducted in a peaceful and nonviolent manner and free from rhetorical quarrel,” the commentator says.

The video ends with the stand that democracy in Cambodia is maturing and that no one can destroy it.
