NEC set to update new voter registration list

The National Election Committee (NEC) is to update its new voter registration list and include more than 40,0000 new voters.

NEC spokesperson Hang Puthea said the new registrations, which will be conducted from October 1-18, is part of a regular process to guarantee the rights of eligible voters.

Puthea said the annual update is meant to delete the names of people who have died and those whose voting rights had been suspended in the last election as well as voters who have migrated.

The first updated voting list and the list of people’s names that have been deleted will be issued on November 26.
