People in Kampong Cham province seem quiet today after they casted ballots in the general election yesterday, with some saying the disappearance of the CNRP is to blame.
Kin Tab, 37, a resident in Kampong Siem district’s Kohmit commune, said that after the 2013 election, former CNRP supporters were eager to monitor the counting of ballots, and file complaints about irregularities.
“This time it is quiet as no opposition party was presented,” he said. “Now we have only the ruling party [CPP].”
“After the 2013 election we were energetic, but for this mandate, there is no activity,” he added.
There were 468,539 voters who cast ballots this year in the province, 81.28 percent of the 576,550 registered.
Meang Meng Huon, heap of the Provincial Election Commission, said that the poll went smoothly.
“I observed that people enjoyed voting,” he said. “They did not face any challenges.”
