The national election will be held next month. Since last week, supporters of the different political parties in Cambodia have staged campaign activities all over the country.
Last Friday, these campaigners caused a huge traffic jam along the capital’s major thoroughfares. Hundreds (if not thousands) of commuters where stranded as convoys of rented trucks, Land Cruisers, and other vehicles rolled around the city with loud speakers blasting party jingles. I was among those unfortunate people who got stuck in traffic for more than an hour.
