EU electoral experts to arrive on October 18

Electoral computing experts from the European Union will arrive in Cambodia on October 18 to help the National Election Committee design its new electronic voter registration system, which is scheduled to launch next year.

NEC official Kuoy Bunroeun said in an announcement that the EU experts will help design the registration procedure and aid in the creation of digital voter lists.

The EU plans to spend $11.3 million over three years to boost election reform in Cambodia.

Currently, two Japanese experts and one French expert are helping the NEC create the new system, which aims to double eligible voter registration while eliminating ineligible people from the rolls.
