Help for Timor poll

Four Cambodian nationals and five international volunteers from Cambodia are among

the 400 polling officers recruited by the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) to assist

in East Timor's "popular consultation" ballot, which will take place in

August, the territory's autonomy or separation from Indonesia, according to a news

release of the UNDP. It is the first time that Cambodians are being posted abroad

for election-related work. The international volunteers include UNVs from Britain,

France, the United States and Austalia. They left on June 28, 1999, for a two-month

assignment.
