EC to call for LG Election nominations in January!



Elections Commission Chairman Nimal G. Punchihewa said the nominations for the Local Government election will be called before January 05 next year (2023).

The Elections Commission previously said that nominations will be called at the end of this month. However, the EC Chairman said that the date for calling nominations falls during the first week of January next year.

He said that a discussion will be held with party secretaries after the announcement of the nominations date.

Meanwhile, it was reported that the number of parties qualified to contest the LG elections is about 86.

It was also said that legal issues have arisen regarding some of the higher positions of some of these parties.

However, it was also reported that political party leaders are dissatisfied with EC Chairman Panchihewa’s decision to postpone the announcement of nominations date.
