Intimidation of electors

Other Names:
Threats against voters
Electoral violence

In order to intimidate Cambodian voters before the 1993 elections, the Phnom Penh government began forcing the submission of UN-issued voter registration cards (totalling 4.6 million) for inspection and possible confiscation. As there had been as many as 40 government assassinations of political opposition organizers, Cambodian voters were intimidated by the prospect of being caught with UN-issued cards.
