The official election results are scheduled to be announced tomorrow since the National Election Committee and the Constitutional Council said that they received no complaint against the preliminary election results.
NEC chairman Sik Bun Hok and Constitutional Council president Im Chhun Lim today released statements, saying that no complaints have been filed against the preliminary election results on August 11.
“The NEC received only one complaint from the Cambodian Youth Party, but the party withdrew its complaint just hours later on August 13,” Mr Bun Hok said.
Mr Chhun Lim said that the constitutional council also received no complaint.
“I would like to inform Chairman of the National Election Committee that within 72 hours after the preliminary election results were announced by the NEC on August 11, the Constitutional Council did not receive any written complaints from the political parties,” he said.
According to article 131 of the Election Law, all political parties contesting in the general election may complain against one part or the whole of preliminary election results to the NEC or to the Constitutional Council directly within 72 hours after the preliminary election results were announced.
The NEC on Saturday announced its preliminary results, upping the voter turnout rate to 83.02 percent with 6,362,241 valid votes cast and 594,659 invalid votes tallied.
The CPP dominated all other parties by securing 4,889,113 votes (77.36 percent) of all valid ballots, it said.
