Despite the political killings, intimidation, and threats, the Cambodian people turned up in droves to vote in the country’s first free and fair elections, exceeding the peacekeepers’ expectations. Held over 6 days from 23 to 28 May 1993, more than four and a half million people, half the population of the country, turned up to vote at 1400 polling stations scattered throughout the country. It was a significant achievement of the peace mission.
