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!
