Report of the Australian and New Zealand Observers to the 1998 Cambodian Elections

The Australian and New Zealand observers to the Cambodian elections, who were part of a wider international contingent of observers, have now finalised and presented their report on the process surrounding the 26 July elections in Cambodia.

The Government will give due consideration to the report after the Australian federal election, and against the background of the unfolding political situation in Cambodia.

We are still awaiting the publication of the final report of the UN Coordinated Joint International Observer Group, which will be a pertinent factor in the Government’s consideration of the election process in Cambodia.

I wish to thank all those who participated as observers.
