I have been a village chief for 15 years. I am satisfied with the current [CPP] authorities, but there are some things I’m not happy with. I’m not happy with authorities not helping the citizens to get ID cards and documents

I’ve been a monk for 15 years and I’ve stayed here [at this pagoda] for six years. I like the education of prayer, and I like preserving [Cambodian Buddhist] culture.

The current authorities are not good. The authorities are the parents of the citizens, but they never think of the children: they only think of the people who have money.

If we compare the last elections to this one, it seems more complicated now. When our family went to register [to vote], we all got the voting slips at different times. Last time, it was all together.

I just have this stall for fun. I didn’t have anything else to do. I pay more in gas getting to the market than I earn from this stall. My husband is a sculptor. Business is doing very well. He doesn’t have time to make all the orders. I am a citizen of Cambodia—if I do not go to vote, I am a citizen of nothing. This is a citizen’s job. I’m not happy with the local authorities in my commune.
