Colombo (LNW): The Election Commission said despite a change in the Commission administration being taken place, there will be no hindrance to the activities of the currently declared local government election.
The Commission’s comment comes in amidst the Constitutional Council’s decision to appoint five new members for the body and the RW-led regime’s controversial move to postpone the LG Polls indefinitely.
Meanwhile, Nimal Punchihewa, the current Chairman of the Election Commission, has been proposed to be nominated as a member of the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL).
The appointment of new EC members nominated by the Constitutional Council will take place after President Ranil Wickremesinghe’s return to Sri Lanka.
