According to an order of the Constitutional Council of Cambodia releasedon August 26, the opening of the safety packages will be held at theNEC’s headquarters in Phnom Penh at 8am on August 28.
The move follows complaints by the opposition Cambodia NationalRescue Party (CNRP) about the initial results of the country’s generalelection on July 28.
Earlier on August 25, the NEC opened safety packages in 13 polling stations in Kratie province.
According to the NEC, the opening of the packages showed that theresults recorded in the 13 polling stations are not different from theannounced election results.
Initial results of theJuly 28 general election showed that the ruling Cambodian People’s Party(CPP) won 68 of the 123 parliamentary seats, with the CNRP taking theremaining 55 seats.
However, the CNRP has disputedthis outcome. The CNRP insists on the establishment of an independentcommittee of representatives from civil social organisations and the UNto investigate election alleged irregularities.
The official election results are set to be released on September 8, according to NEC.-VNA
