Prime Minister Hun Sen instructed all people not to sell and drink alcohol on the eve of the polling day and polling day in a move to prevent any unexpected incidents.
Mr Hun Sen urged all people not to sell and drink alcohols on July 28 and 29 to avoid the deaths or injuries caused by alcohol consumption and to ensure the election proceeding smoothly.
He said that the government made great effort to provide security during the electoral process to ensure a free and fair election.
Mr Hun Sen ordered all authorities, including police and military police to educate both Cambodians and foreigners to heed the instruction by refraining from alcohol consumption for two days.
He also called on the Information Ministry and the National Election Committee to work together to inform voters about the causes.
Last week, Mr Hun Sen announced that any individuals who drink alcohol on the election’s day may face penalties as it is contrary to the NEC’s rule and regulation which prohibited drinking alcohol during election from 12 am on July 28 till 12 am on July 29.
