The Constitutional Council of Cambodia (CCC) has declared the constitutionality of the Law on Amendment to the Election Law.

The declaration was unanimously made after a CCC’s plenary meeting to review the constitutionality of the law, held here this morning under the chairmanship of its President H.E. Im Chhun Lim, said a CCC’s press release.

The law was approved by the National Assembly on June 23, 2023 at its 9th Session of the 6th legislature, and by the Senate at its 10th session of the 4th legislature on June 29, 2023.

The eight-article law is aimed to reform the “right to stand for election” in order to enhance the value of pluralist liberal democracy stated in the constitution of Cambodia, as well as to promote accountability of elected political leaders at the national and sub-national levels.
