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.

A senior US diplomat says the US will continue to have discussions with claimants in the South China Sea dispute. In an interview with VOA Khmer, Scot Marciel, the State Department’s top diplomat for Asia and the Pacific, said “regular conversations” will help reduce regional tensions over the sea. “The whole world has an interest in a peaceful South China Sea and in seeing these disputes resolved peacefully and diplomatically,” he said in an interview in Phnom Penh. “So we’ll continue to make that point.” (Sok Khemara, Phnom Penh)
