Kampot inaugurates Bokor town

The Kampot Provincial Administration has set August 12 for the inauguration of the newly established Bokor town hall and launch of administrative services.

Made up of three communes, the town was officially formed by a sub-decree in March, followed by a council election on July 25.

Voting was for the 17 council members of Boeung Touk, Koh Touch and Prek Tnort communes.

The ruling Cambodian People's Party won all the 17 votes, while the other three parties contesting the election – Cambodian Nationality Party, Cambodian Youth Party and Funcinpec– received none.

“On August 12, we will hold a ceremony to inaugurate Bokor town so that it can start providing public services to the people and to better develop the community,” the provincial administration said on August 7.

Provincial governor Cheav Tay said the establishment of Bokor town was to promote socio-economy and the people's livelihoods.
