Speaking further he stated that the Commonwealth, Asian Election Monitors Association and members of Monitors belonging to SAARC member countries were extended invitations in this manner.

 

However, the elections commissioner also stated that the rumor that observers of countries who voted against Sri Lanka during the UNHRC summit in Geneva not being invited is untrue.

 

He reiterated that the fact that a country voted for or against Sri Lanka at Geneva does not dictate which country is extended an invitation.
