There are 559 seats up for grab in Phnom Penh and the 24 provinces, while there are 3,555 seats up for grab in all districts and municipalities across the Kingdom.
“Political parties and relevant stakeholders must pay attention when doing their duties,” NEC vice chairman Nuth Sokhom said. “They must ensure the electoral process, especially by adhering to rules and regulations.”
Mr Sokhom noted in the first mandate, there were 375 seats up for grab, while the second had 393 seats up for grab.
