The Council of Ministers’ Press and Quick Reaction Unit has released a video announcing that the July 29 national elections would be regarded as the “best” in Cambodia’s history.
The 14-minute documentary, titled Will the July general election be liberal, pluralistic, and democratic? draws on four points to reach its conclusion.
The election process would be smooth and free, multiparty, open to observers and without violence, the video says.
Noting that there are 20 political parties vying in the elections despite the country only having eight million voters, the video says: “Cambodia is setting another good example for other countries in terms of pluralism, which is the basic principle of a democratic election.”
“In brief,” in continues, “the general election scheduled for July 29, could be considered one of the best elections in Cambodia’s history.
“Best election in the sense that this election will be held with the participation of so many political parties coupled with strict implementation of three main principles – being liberal, pluralistic, and democratic – principles that are the best foundation for an election.
“Last but not least, this coming election will be conducted in a peaceful and nonviolent manner and free from rhetorical quarrel,” the commentator says.
The video ends with the stand that democracy in Cambodia is maturing and that no one can destroy it.
