Preliminary arrangements have been made to accept nominations for the forthcoming local government election.
Nominations will be accepted from Thursday and will continue until the 27th of this month. Polls will be conducted for more than 300 Local Bodies throughout the country. The Elections Department said although there has been a delay in making preliminary arrangements in the flood affected areas, the law does not provide for action to be taken during such delays.
A special meeting was held with regard to the initial planning including the acceptance of nominations. The required instructions were provided at the meeting there. Temporary identity cards will be issued for those who do not possess National IDs.
