The National Election Committee’s (NEC) deputy secretary-general and spokesman, Som Sorida, claimed that Japan has consistently stood behind the Kingdom, particularly when it comes to issues involving the election process.
“Japan has helped us with voter education and outreach,” he continued, “even though it hasn’t been as active in recent years.”
“Their assistance in helping us with the election has been invaluable. The Japanese government has provided ongoing financial, technical, and expert support, for which the NEC would like to express its gratitude.
Sorida urged Japan to continue aiding Cambodia’s democracy’s growth and the election process. He also requested that Japan take into consideration aiding the NEC’s efforts at digital modernization to upgrade its more dated, manual information systems.
