Opposition leader Sam Rainsy dismissed the possibility of losing his seats when a new government is formed, but claimed instead he was concentrating on restoring the votes of those who were unable to cast ballots in July's election.
"We have found the evidence that the ruling Cambodian People's Party commune and local authorities illegally issued form 1018 to allow ghost and Vietnamese voters to be eligible to vote for CPP, and I launched the complaint yesterday," Sam Rainsy said.
The falsification of documents carries an Untac penalty of up to 15 years, Sam Rainsy said, and many local officials had violated the law.
He was receiving more evidence each day, he said.
