Electoral reform in Cambodia

This program consultation report is the result of election document and legal framework reviews, and in-depth consultations and interviews with nearly 150 stakeholder representatives from a diverse cross-section conducted by "Expert Committee on Electoral Reform." Overall, people felt that electoral exercises were becoming increasingly smoother and more peaceful. Specifically, those consulted reported that violence and egregious fraud (stealing ballot boxes, armed threats at polling stations, etc.) were rare. It was acknowledged, however, that problems remained, particularly with regard to the overall transparency of the process such as voter registration and voter list, a delegation of the electoral responsibilities to local authorities, electoral system, media, political finance and complaint resolution.
