Electoral registra on up 700,000 new voters
The update of the electoral roll used for the 30 July legislative elections resulted in a total registration of 6.2 million voters, while the previous roll reached 5.5 million registered voters. For more transparency, long before the elections, provisional voter lists were available in the interior parts of the country, at town halls, sub-prefectures and prefectures, as well as at diplomatic representations abroad. This allowed any person left off the electoral roll or whose registration or request for modification had not been properly carried out, to request his or her inclusion on the voter roll or corrections to be made to the information pertaining to that person.
