CBT Member, Mao Sy, shows his voting finger on June 3

June 3rd was Election Day in Cambodia.  Over 1500 communes voted for their Commune Chief.  In Cambodia, the political structure is village > commune > district > province.  So, these elections are very important at the local level.  In Banteay Chhmar, the villagers elected a new Commune Chief.

Van Som Orn is from Banteay Chhmar’s Tbong Village.  He is 44 years old, married and has 2 children.  We all wish him the best of success in improving the Banteay Chhmar community!
