Date set for 2017 commune elections
Elections for Cambodia’s commune councils will take place on June 4 next year, according to a directive from Prime Minister Hun Sen released yesterday.
The brief missive, signed by the premier, was issued to end the “concern and curiosity” of “some political parties”, said ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) spokesman Sok Eysan.
The announcement – which follows calls by the Grassroots Democracy Party (GDP) to fix an election date – gives the National Election Committee a little over a year to register nearly 10 million eligible voters in a new digital system, which has been beset with delays.
