The Election Secretariat states that the distribution of ballot boxes is successfully taking place at present.

Additional Commissioner of Elections R.M.A.L. Rathnayeke speaking to our news team noted that ballot boxes for 3,247 polling centres are being distributed at present.

Meanwhile a group of government servants who had arrived at the Anuradhapura Central College to obtain their appointments as presiding officers at polling centres have been denied their appointments.

When inquired by the Anuradhapura Additional Elections Commissioner in this regard he stated that the group would be deployed to serve elsewhere during tomorrows polls.

According to our provincial correspondent based in Polonnaruwa voting will take place at 287 polling centres located throughout the district.

Moreover preoperational activities in the Kegalle district are also said to be drawing to a close in view of tomorrow's polls.

Distribution of ballot boxes in the Trincomalee district is said to be taking place incident free.

Meanwhile police media spokesperson SSP Ajith Rohana notes that no acts of sabotage have been reported so far during the distribution of ballot boxes.
