Presidential Voting period extended by one hour
The Elections Commission has decided to extend the Presidential election by one hour.
Representatives of all political parties have agreed to the proposal made by the President of the Election Commission Mahinda Deshapriya.
The Elections Commission Chairman stated that this time it is appropriate to extend the voting period by an hour as the ballot paper is slightly longer than 2 feet.
Accordingly, all political representatives have agreed to hold the presidential election on November 16 from 7 am to 5 pm.
