By: Isuru Parakrama

Colombo (LNW): The Election Commission has made a written request from President Ranil Wickremesinghe in his capacity as the Minister of Finance to release the funds required for the holding of the Local Government Election.

The written request has been made based on the Finance Secretary’s response to previous requests that he cannot make a decision on the funds without the approval of the Minister of Finance due to the current ‘financial situation,’ Commission Chief Nimal Punchihewa said.

Reports emerged early claimed that a situation triggered by the non-availability of funds required for the ballot papers for the LG Polls had emerged making it impossible to conduct postal voting of the Polls on the newly declared dates (Mar. 28 – 31).
