First election result expected at midnight tomorrow – Election Commissioner

The Election Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya said that the first presidential election result is expected to be announced by midnight tomorrow (16).

However, he said that it was not possible to predict if it would be a postal voting result or an electoral result.

He said that the first result would be determined by which is taken for counting first, adding that with the increased length of the ballot paper this time, it would take longer to count the ballots.

The complete result of the presidential election is expected to be released by noon on the 18th, he said.
