Polling for the Local Government election began at 7.00am today (10), at 13,374 polling centres across the island.

The LG polls will be held to elect members for 340 Local Government bodies under the newly implemented election system.

The Election Commission has urged all voters to mark their respective ballot box with an X against the selected party symbol.

Nearly 15.8 million voters will cast their votes today to elect 8,356 members to 341 local government bodies in a nationally important and decisive election to be held in Sri Lanka’s recent political history.

This election is the first-ever local government polls held under the new electoral system in the wake of the enactment of the Local Authorities Elections (Amendment) Act No.22 of 2012, which was the outcome of the recommendations of an all-party parliamentary select committee chaired by parliamentarian Dinesh Gunawardana.
