CNRP complaint: Poll station moved from CPP domain

The National Election Committee has moved a Kandal province polling station at the request of the Cambodia National Rescue Party, who complained it was located in an area heavily occupied by Cambodian People’s Party supporters.

Sala Bon village in Ponhea Leu district’s Koh Chin commune, the former location of polling station 1142, is surrounded by property owned by members of the Cambodian People’s Party, a spokesman for the CNRP, Yim Sovann, wrote in a letter to the NEC.

Soon after receiving Sovann’s letter, the commission sent officials to investigate, NEC secretary-general Tep Nytha said.

The polling station was relocated at the behest of the CNRP, said Kong Hong, president of Kandal Provincial Election Committee.

“After investigating the complaint, we have decided to relocate the polling office,” Hong said.

The new location is about 20 meters away, he said.
