The National Election Committee has summed up election day as a success, noting 82.17 percent of registered voters cast ballots and that there was no violence.
Speaking at a press conference after polling station closed, NEC chairman Sik Bun Hok said 22,967 polling stations across the country had reported a smooth election.
“This is a success,” he said. “I offer this accurate and transparent preliminary-result for all relevant parties as information that can be verified from now until the official results.”
Mr Bun Hok added that authorities assisted with security well, making the election turnout high and ensuring a safe voting environment.
“There was no violence reported,” he said. “It clearly shows that Cambodian voters have become more mature when compared to the past. They understand their obligation and their rights.”
