IEC Secretary, Jeff Siamisang, reported that 2,513 registrations were rejected. “[At least] 2,261 were rejected for multiple registrations, 205 didn't meet the minimum age requirement, 29 had non-existent Omang numbers, and 18 had names inconsistent with their Omang numbers,” he stated. Additionally, the final analysis shows 763,247 validly registered voters across all 61 constituencies.
