Election change coming

National Election Committee secretary general Tep Nytha announced yesterday that the government will discontinue the use of 10-18 forms, used by voters who lack government identification cards, in the upcoming 2012 elections. “In principle, we will stop using [10-18 forms] when registering people to vote,” he said, adding that roughly 200,000 voters had used 10-18 forms in the 2008 elections among more than 5 million eligible voters. Sam Rainsy Party lawmaker Ho Vann said he supported the provision of government identification cards, though he warned that voters could be disenfranchised if such cards are not sufficiently distributed.
