Finalised version of draft NEC law nearly finished

Working groups from the ruling and opposition parties are expected today to finish their work on a draft of the new law on the organisation and function of the National Election Committee, Cambodia National Rescue Party working group head Kuoy Bunroeun said yesterday.

Bunroeun said that 90 per cent of the provisions in the new law had been agreed upon by both parties, and that the remaining points of contention would be passed up, along with the mostly completed draft, to party leadership.

“There are five or six more points we have not agreed upon yet,” Bunroeun said, declining to elaborate on what the points were.

After party leaders are satisfied, he added, the law will go on to the National Assembly’s legislation commission, which has to approve the bill before it moves to the floor for a general vote – something likely to happen next month.
