President Mahinda Rajapaksa in an interview with The Hindu said that the election for the Northern Provincial Council will be held in September 2013.

President Rajapaksa said there were many issues to be resolved ahead of holding of elections.

The primary one related to the electoral rolls. The second issue was the completion of the rehabilitation and resettlement process.

This was on with international support and was expected to be completed soon.

President Rajapaksa also refused to accept that the Indian vote against Sri Lanka in the United Nations Human Rights Council was because Colombo did not implement the promises it made to the Council in 2009.

Insisting that his government had worked on all the promises that were delivered and was serious about fulfilling all undertakings that were given, he said he had even said that he was willing to go beyond the 13th Amendment.
