After the passing of the Local Government Election Amendment Bill, the Election Commission was planning to hold the local government election on or before the 9th December.

However, the Election Commission Chairman, Mahinda Deshapriya told our news team that he had been informed by the Examinations Department that the G.C.E. O/L examination will begin on the 12thDecember, therefore government school premises will not be able to release for the purpose.

The Chairman said that the Election Commissioner General had informed this to him in writing.

Since the election could not be rescheduled to an alternative date in December, the election would be postponed till next January.
