Election Commissioner General Saman Sri Ratnayake says that for this year’s local government election, the work can be completed with less than the estimated amount.
“We are using the 2022 voters list for this election. We have to act according to the rules of the Act. We will continue our activities until the law makes some kind of provision.
We estimate current prices. Accordingly, we are of the opinion that we will have Rs.10 billion in cash. There is that amount. He mentions that the cost that was said to be 8 billion last time was 5.8 million even in the Covid-19 situation.
