Polls this year for 6 PCs Featured

On a recommendation by the election commission, the government has decided to hold elections for six provincial councils by the end of the year.

Three of the PCs have completed their terms (Sabaragamuwa, north central and 

eastern), while the other three (central, northern and northwestern) will end their terms in September.

Political parties are to agree to hold the PC polls under the old preferential voting system, owing to the shortcomings in the new system.
