A VOA Khmer Service team spent six months talking with Cambodians during the run-up to the nation’s sixth national vote for 125 members of the National Assembly on July 29, 2018. The team traveled to six provinces and Phnom Penh, the capital city, and focused on rural residents because they are the majority of Cambodia’s voters. Many spoke of how they feel left behind by their nation’s economic expansion, which is upending their traditional way of life as they are buffeted by national and global forces.
