The National Election Committee (NEC) will print more than 20,000 ballots for the February 25 Senate election.

Senators are elected by votes cast by members of the National Assembly and commune councilors, totaling 11,695 voters. There will be 33 polling stations around the country.

Four political parties have registered to contest the election, including the ruling CPP, the Cambodia Youth Party, the Khmer National United Party and the royalist Funcinpec party.

The ruling CPP earlier this week drew the number one spot among the four political parties contesting the February 25 Senate elections.

Sorm Sorida, the deputy secretary-general of the NEC, said the committee will soon issue a public tender to employ a company to print the ballots.

He said 25,950 ballots will be printed by the end of January at a cost of about $18,000.
