H.E. Dim Sovannarom, a member and chairperson of Press Reaction Team of National Election Committee of Cambodia (NEC) shared the update upon his arrival this week from the meeting.

According to its press release issued yesterday, NEC was fully supported by 22 RECEF members and three partners, including the International Organisation of La Francophonie (OIF), the European Centre for Electoral Support (ECES), and the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA), he said.
