The National Election Committee yesterday released a monthly meeting schedule with the European and Japanese embassies in a bid to ensure the voter-registration process, due to begin September 1, will go smoothly.
The first meeting will take place July 21, said NEC spokesman Hang Puthea. “The NEC and donors have organised a joint program to work together even more closely,” Puthea said.
The Japanese Embassy, through the Japan International Cooperation Agency, is in charge of building and managing the database server.
He said the NEC had wanted to make all voter data public, but JICA recommended that only names be published.
Neither the Japanese Embassy nor the European Embassy were available for comment yesterday.
