University student studying accounting; from Trach Tong commune in Kompong Speu province’s Odong district
“I live in [Phnom Penh’s] Sen Sok district with my brother. I’ve been here for one year. My parents are rice farmers. They have about 3 to 4 hectares in Oudong.
I registered to vote, but not here. I will go back to my hometown for voting.
I’m concerned about drugs. There is a small amount [in my commune]. I’ve heard about it. I’m worried about [it affecting] friends and family.
I want the government to establish job opportunities for new graduates. I worry about there not being jobs for me here. There also seem to be few jobs [for me] outside Cambodia.
I want to see Cambodia develop. For example, the education system should be developed because some areas have no schools and no study assistance. I also want laboratories and libraries in the provinces. I want to find a job in the city.
I’m going to vote for the opposition. I decided to vote for the CNRP because I want to see change in Cambodia.”
