A delegation of young Cambodian politicians has had a firsthand look at how Japan conducts its local elections. The visitors said they hoped to gain tips to enhance democracy at home.
A total of 10 young Cambodians, from 8 ruling and opposition parties and a think-tank, toured Miyazaki City in western Japan on April 22.
The city bustled with campaign activity ahead of the municipal election, which was part of Japan’s nationwide local polls. Voting took place the following day.
