According to the order of the Supreme court, the Elpitiya Pradeshiya Sabha election is to be held on the 11th of October.

The Supreme Court issued an order on the 30th of August requesting the elections commission to hold the election of the Elpitiya pradeshiya sabha immediately.

This was taking into account a petition filed with regard to rejecting the nomination list by the democratic united national front.
It was also ordered that the nomination list be accepted.

Meanwhile, president’s secretary Udaya R Seneviratne says that the Supreme Court has informed the president that the provincial council elections cannot be held under the provincial council amendment act or any other law which was previously in effect.

This was explaining the unanimous decision made by the 5-judge bench of the supreme court.

The communique issued by the presidents secretary last evening notes that the supreme court had noted that without a review committee report, the president does not have the authority to declare electoral boundaries as per the delimitation report which has been handed over to the minister.

The president had inquired from the Supreme Court on the possibility of holding the election in accordance with the previous system if elections cannot be held under the respective amended act.

Accordingly the Supreme Court had informed the president that the election cannot be held according to the law which was in effect prior to the amendment.

Meanwhile, the elections commission has informed the secretaries of accepted political parties that the presidential election should be held between November 10th and December 8th.

It has been reported that through the letter the commission requested to be informed of the respective nominees for the presidential election.
