U.S. Embassy Phnom Penh Celebrates Election Day
U.S. Embassy, Phnom Penh | November 7, 2012
On the morning on November 7 local time, U.S. Embassy Phnom Penh organized a viewing of the U.S. Presidential election results with approximately 100 guests, including Cambodian government officials, foreign diplomats, civil society members, university professors, students, the Ambassador’s Youth Council, and the media. Guests participated in a mock election and were treated to photo ops with President Obama and Governor Romney look-alike stand-ins.
In his remarks to the guests, U.S. Ambassador William E. Todd spoke about democracy being more than a one-time event, but rather a process determined by the will of Americans. He made clear that no matter the outcome of the election the relationship between Cambodia and the United States will only get stronger.
