The Chairman of Election Commission has issued a statement to the media with regard to the delay of releasing election results.

Deshapriya said already counting is completed at polling centres and polling divisions and Returning Officers have received results via fax or by telephone.

However, he said there's confusion due to, in certain instances that postal vote count has been sent separately and in some instances, the total vote count has been sent.

He said because of that the Returning Officers are forced to check the total count again in order to avoid any mistake in the final count.

Because of that, the Commission's Chairman said it would take few more hours to announce the final results.

He also said until a final result of a Local Government authority is added to the system by the relevant Returning Officer, that the Election Commission is unable to release the final result of that LG authority.
