National election voter registration kicks off

More than 100,000 new voters have already registered to vote in the upcoming 2013 national election during the first week of registration, the head of the National Election Committee said yesterday.

NEC Secretary General Tep Nytha told the Post that in the week after registration began on September 1, num­bers were on track to meet ex­­pectations.

“We plan to regis­ter [to vote] for 610,000 people. So, one week ago [we] regist­er­­ed 100,000 people.

This speed is fast because the period of registration is 42 days,” Nytha said.

Registration for next year’s national election ends on October 12.
