Phnom Penh, March 20, 2024 – A Cambodian National Assembly delegation, led by Ty Sokun, Secretary of the Fifth Committee, along with Khuth Chandara, Member of the Ninth Committee and Vice Chairman of the Cambodia-Russia National Assembly Friendship Group, journeyed to Moscow to witness the Russian Presidential Election in March 2024.

Pich Khun Panha, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Cambodia to the Russian Federation, was also part of the delegation, emphasizing the diplomatic significance of the visit.

The Cambodian observers engaged in extensive discussions with key Russian figures, including Gennady Ivanovich Ordenov, a Member of the Federal Council, and Vladislav Davankov, the youngest presidential contender from the New People's Party. These meetings provided insights into Russia’s electoral system, campaign registration processes, and the perspectives of candidates on electoral proceedings and outcomes.
