The Cambodian-German parliamentary Friendship Group received the German Ambassador, Dr. Ingo Karsten, for a courtesy call at the National Assembly on July 12, 2017. The German Ambassador shared his observation in the recently held Commune Council Election and congratulated Cambodia for the peacefulness of the election. The Members of Parliament informed the German Ambassador that the positive reaction, both locally and internationally, for the communal election is a sign of sub-national democratic development in Cambodia. In this regard, H.E. Nhem Thavy, Member of Parliament and Deputy Head of Cambodian-German Parliamentary Friendship Group, showed great interest in the federal system of the Federal Republic of German, in particular in German sub-national management and the interaction between local and federal authorities.
