Commune/Sangkat Election Campaign Lasts only 14 Days

Commune/Sangkat election campaign lasts only 14 days and political parties can make procession only twice in one commune/Sangkat during that period.

The information was shared during the Consultation Meeting on Draft Regulations and Procedures for Commune/Sangkat Council Election 2017, which began on Jan. 5.

The campaign and procession periods are the results of the negotiations between the ruling Cambodian People's Party (CPP) and the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) after a political agreement on July 22, 2014.
