EC: Temporary IDs Issued Last Year Valid For LG Polls

Feb 13, 2011 8:34:46 PM - thesundayleader.lk

The Elections Commissioner Dayananda Dissanayake had said that persons holding temporary identity cards that were issued for the Presidential and general elections last year, could use them at the forthcoming local government polls as well.

The Elections Department has said that instructions have already been given to all District Elections Commissioners to release the temporary identity cards that were returned following the conclusion of the elections last year.

The temporary identity cards are to be handed over to the relevant Grama Niladharis to be distributed among the people.

Persons who do not posses a national identity card or a temporary card could obtain a temporary identity card after handing over two photographs to the relevant Grama Niladhari.
