There are 1,621 Communes/Sangkats in Cambodia. Each Commune Council is composed of 5 to 11 members depending on demography and geography, elected through a proportional system where nationally registered political parties can compete by presenting a list of candidates of at least twice the number of seats in each Commune. There are no independent candidates.

The first commune-level election was held in February 2002. The latest one was held in April 2007.

Cambodia's first Senate Election was held on January 22, 2006.
2 Senators were nominated by the King and 2 were elected by the National Assembly of Cambodia. The rest were elected by commune councillors.
