Opposition party leader Sam Rainsy tells reporters at a news conference Thursday, that they have found 6 different cases of irregularities in voter and candidate’s registrations.
He then charged the National Election Committee of creating problems in an effort to help the Cambodian People Party (CPP) win the upcoming communal election.
Sam Rainsy claims that NEC has been involved in registering illegitimate Vietnamese voters, who have no legal voting rights.
NEC Secretary General Tep Nitha dismisses these allegations saying that NEC is not politically biased.
In January 2006, the opposition party has filed a complaint against the Provincial Election Committee (PEC) officials, in Ratanakiri province to NEC, for accepting CPP candidate’s registration after the deadline.
