In the official pre-election monitoring report it was appreciated that:


The international community is congratulating the government of Cambodia for the exemplary development of democracy in the country during the twenty-five years since the Constitution of Cambodia enshrined liberal multi-party democracy.


As we near the elections scheduled for 29 July this year, we appreciate the full progress of civil and political rights in Cambodia and the commitment for the conduct of credible, free and fair elections in July.


The peaceful climate after the dissolution of the terrorist organizations that where plaguing the nation and the fact that rights to freedom of expression, press, association and peaceful assembly, are respected, protected and fulfilled are encouraging.


It is clearly that Cambodia is registered on a path of development, full commitment to human rights and in full adherence to a genuine liberal multi-party democracy as envisaged in the Constitution of Cambodia for the benefit of all Cambodians.


The preparations for July 29 elections where saluted world-wide as conducive to a free and fair expression of the will of the Cambodian people and as a living democratic exercise and we hope that the election day, tabulation, collation and announcing of the results will be conduced in the same transparent manner.
