NEC sets complaint deadline

The National Election Commission will accept all reports of irregularities from political parties and stakeholders for five days beginning today.

A statement posted on the NEC website last night said complaints from political parties and election observation organisations would be examined before thorough measures would be taken.

The NEC has also invited observers to monitor its official tabulation of election results at the national level beginning on Saturday, after having received preliminary results from the commune and provincial levels, NEC Secretary General Tep Nytha said yesterday.

“For this process, we invite all political party representatives, local and international observers, and if there are any complaints, then the NEC will resolve the case, and if there is any complaint about an irregularity filed at the [provincial election committee], then we will resolve all these things,” he said.

Transparency International Cambodia’s Preap Kol called the announcement “a step forward”.
