PHNOM PENH - An election monitoring group has developed a smartphone application to help voters get news about the upcoming July election and other political events, and to help them report irregularities during the campaign and polls.

Srey Sopheak, a spokesman for the Committee for Free and Fair Elections, told VOA Khmer in a Skype interview that the Cambodian Voter Voice app also contains educational video clips, a calendar and other features to help Cambodians participate in the upcoming election.

“If people think the election is important and it relates to their future, and if they don’t have the time or money to open a full website, people can download the Cambodian Voter Voice,” he said. “This program will allow voters or users to send election irregularities or report other information to the Cambodian Voter Voice website, and the reports will be incorporated into a map of other irregularities.”

The app is free for Android device uses and can be found at Google’s “play” store. So far about 500 people have downloaded the app, he said.

During the time the Khmer Rouge was in power, from April 17, 1975, to Jan. 7, 1979, more than 1.7 million Cambodians perished. The Khmer Rouge especially targeted intellectuals and artists for execution, as they sought to create an agrarian ideal. In an exclusive interview with VOA Khmer's Poch Reasey, Tea Lim Koun discusses his filmmaking in the 1960s and 1970s and what it meant to leave it behind.
