Press Release On Local Watchdog Award

The Committee for Free and Fair Elections in Cambodia (COMFREL) has the honor to inform the public that COMFREL organized an award-granting ceremony for four of its local watchdogs who work voluntarily for COMFREL at the grassroots level.

 One of their roles is to observe the performance of commune councilors. They are also involved in establishing a relationship with commune councilors or conducting a forum to facilitate communication between commune councilors and local residents.  Three of them were ranked as the top three prominent local watchdogs for implementing local activities in individual communes for the year 2008-2009.
