New List of Voters To Be Pinned on Board Publicly Early January

The National Election Committee (NEC) will post the preliminary voters' list on Jan. 3, 2017 at the communes/Sangkat nationwide and at NEC's website: www.voterlist.org.kh, along with the list of names removed.

The new voters' list is the result of the first ever computerised voter registration which took place from Sept. 1 to Nov. 30, 2016.

NEC called on all registered voters to verify their names by bringing along with them their ID and other relevant documents, at the commune/Sangkat where they had registered.

If any error or problem in the new voters' list, the voters or their eligible representatives can file a complaint at the commune/Sangkat until Jan. 14.

Nearly 8 million eligible voters have been registered, or 81.47 percent of total 9.6 million voters via computerised registration process supported by the EU and Japan.

The official list of voters will be announced on Feb. 12 and the commune/Sangkat council election is scheduled to be held on June 4, 2017.
