NEC plans registration update

THE National Election Committee (NEC) is scheduled to start its annual update of voter registration lists at the end of September, NEC officials said Sunday.

Tep Nytha, secretary general of the NEC, said that voter lists from 2008 will be posted in a total of 1,621 communes across the country, where voters will be asked to confirm their names. New voters will have the chance to register, and voters who have moved or died will be removed from the lists, he said. Voter lists will be posted on September 29, and registration will run October 1-20.

A group of local election-monitoring NGOs, including the Neutral and Impartial Committee for Free and Fair Elections, released a survey in July reporting that there are roughly 350,000 Cambodians who, having reached 18 years of age, will be eligible to register as new voters this year.
