Too Little, Too Late
From the Phnom Penh Post – the National Election Committee admits 270,000 names were duplicated on the voter list.
According to the NEC’s computerized 2012 voter list, there were 270,000 duplicated names on the list that need to be removed, Mr. Nytha said by telephone. Supporting that figure, commune officials who hand-checked the voter lists found that more than 130,000 names were duplicated or belonged to people who had died or moved residence, Mr. Nytha said.
On the day of the July election, scores of voters interviewed at polling stations said they had encountered problems when they tried to vote. Many said they found their names crossed out because someone else had voted using their identity.
