Registration of new political parties will start on Tuesday.
New political parties that aspire to contest the forthcoming elections will be registered accordingly. The Elections Secretariat has made arrangements to accept applications from the 1st to 30th of June. The political parties will be registered under the Parliamentary Elections Act No. 1 of 1981. A number of applications had been forwarded during the recent past for registration. The Elections Secretariat said that it was unable to carry out the registrations due to the Presidential and General elections.
