NEC will publish National election lists January 13

The National Election Committee (NEC) plans to publish the first version of voter lists for next year’s national election on January 13.

Som Sorida, deputy secretary-general of the NEC, said that doing this would give registered voters a chance to check their names and details against their national identity cards, so there would be no problems on election day.

He explained that if people found that their details were incorrect, they could apply to have them changed by supplying their national ID card or another valid form of identification.

Sorida added that people also had the right to file a complaint against another person’s inclusion on the list, provided they could provide sufficient documents to prove that the person did not meet the conditions to be included.

To qualify for inclusion on the list, voters must be Cambodian citizens, 18 years old at the time of the election, be resident in the commune in which they are enrolled and have no convictions which bar them from taking part in the democratic process.

“Once the list is published, people can check their names on the physical copies which will be posted in the commune headquarters. They can also check on the NEC’s website or download the NEC KH mobile app,” added Sorida.

An NEC Report showed that within the 50 day period of the registration and review process of the 2022 voter list – which ran from October 20 to December 8 – more than 500,000 people registered themselves to vote. More than 250,000 were removed from the list.

The total number of people on this year’s list is over ten million, an increase on the more than nine million who were on last year’s.

The National Elections for the seventh mandate will be held on July 23 next year.
