Commune elections

The Cambodian Senate unanimously passed the commune election law on Feb 14. The

Senate passed the law in spite of concerns by election monitoring groups that articles

of the law threaten their capacity as impartial observers of the election process.

Although government spokesmen said the long-delayed commune elections would take

place within eleven months after final approval of the law by the Constitutional

Council and King Norodom Sihanouk, there is keep skepticism among election monitors

that the vote will again be postponed.
