No Decision On Postponing LG Polls

Feb 7, 2011 10:39:49 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The Elections Department has said that it has not made any decision to postpone the local government elections due to the heavy rains and floods experienced in the country.

Several political parties, including those affiliated to the government have already made several requests from the Elections Department to postpone the local government elections in the areas that have been affected by adverse weather conditions.

So far the TNA, SLMC and the NFF have called on the Elections Commissioner to postpone the local government elections in the flood affected areas.

Officials from the Elections Department have been quoted in the local media today (7) saying the elections would go ahead as scheduled on march 17.
