Amid criticism, NEC rolls out voter registry early

The National Election Com-mittee yesterday called on voters to check their names on the list, which they released at all commune election committee offices and online yesterday.

Between July 1 and 25, voters can check their names at the offices, via five mobile phone hotlines or online, the NEC said in a statement, noting that “previously, the list was available only a day before election day”.

Voters who have not received information cards, meanwhile, can pick them up until July 26, the statement reads.

Opposition spokesman Yim Sovann commended the early rollout but said the NEC hadn’t done enough to inscribe those wrongly left off the list. “The issue isn’t whether they show the voter list a month before.

The issue is that one million Cambodians lost their names to vote,” he said.
