President Mahinda Rajapaksa states that an electoral bill which seeks to revise the existing election act including the preferential system will be introduced to parliament on the 10th of October.

This comment by President Mahinda Rajapaksa came during a media briefing which was held at Temple Trees today with the participation of Media Heads.

The government had formerly appointed a committee to create an amendment to the preferential system by fusing both the divisional & proportional representation mechanisms.

According to the committee's recommendations, the initial election in which the preferential system would be done away with would be the upcoming provincial polls.
