Long way to go

After the first commune council election in February 2002, the goals of local electoral

democracy and the role of citizens and councillors still had long way to go, Prum

Sokha, secretary of state at the Ministry of Interior, said at a press conference

to launch a nationwide public awareness campaign on the government decentralization

process.

Heng Puthea, executive director of local monitoring election NGO Neutral and Impartial

Committee for Free and Fair Election in Cambodia said that the NICFEC task force

will run a theatrical drama-based education campaign on the decentralization process

from November 18 until March 2005. More than 500 dramatic education and 240 movie

film performances across the country will be held in order to bring public awareness

around the roles and responsibilities of local governance.
