NEC receives heaps of hardware from China

The National Election Committee yesterday announced the details of an assistance package from China, which has pledged to support Cambodia’s upcoming commune and national elections, set for 2017 and 2018.

According to an NEC press release, the body received 170 generators, 85 computers and a host of other electronic devices. The shipment will be followed by more equipment soon, the statement said.

Speaking yesterday, NEC spokesman Hang Puthea said the office hardware would be sent to the provinces to support the current voter registration drive and other election preparation efforts.

As of October 10, the NEC said it had registered 5,047,557 of Cambodia’s estimated 9.6 million eligible voters.
