The process voter list revision and voter list registration 2012 for the fifth mandate National Assembly Election 2013 was accomplished by National Election Committee (NEC), Commune/Sangkat Councilors and clerks all of whom have registered 916.757 eligible voters, more than the 619.630 expected eligible voters. Hence, the NEC’s prediction on the number of voter registration is always erroneous.
During the previous voter list revision and voter registration in 2011, there were raining and flooding in some provinces like Oddor Meanchey, Preah Vihear, Banteay Meanchey, Takeo, Battambang, Pursat, Kompong Chhang, Siem Reap, Kompong Cham, Kompong Spue, Kandal, Prey Veng, Svay Reing, Rattanakiri and Kompot. Consequently, that caused a lot of difficulties for citizens and in-charged officials to manage their work. For instance, in Kalang commune, Kanlong district in Rattanakiri, the voter registration office was often closed before its due time due to the downpours.
