Positive Youth Engagement in Election Discussed

Ministry of Information and the Club of Cambodian Journalists have recently brought for discussion a positive engagement of youth in election, giving their potential as the future of the nation.

Organised here in Phnom Penh, the discussion workshop was participated by a large number of media agencies in Cambodia.

Information Under Secretary of State H.E. Ouk Kimseng, who presided over the discussion, urged youth to cross-check their information digests and attach to right think-tanks in order to contribute positively to the development of the society, including their right to vote.

There are always areas for improvement in a society, added H.E. Ouk Kimseng, so youth should share their constructive participation rather than destructing the society.

President of the Club of Cambodian Journalists Mr. Pen Bona echoed the view, adding that youth need to know well their role in the election as they are the next generations of the country.

The discussion was held as the country is anticipating its fourth mandate Commune/Sangkat Council Election to take place on June 4, 2017.
