The Election Commission of Sri Lanka (ECSL) has called on all political parties that have not submitted their audited accounts for 2021 to do so before 29 March or risk being removed from the list of registered political parties. The ECSL said all parties that have not submitted the accounts have been issued reminders on several occasions and therefore they will be removed from the list of registered political parties if they do not heed this final warning.
Meanwhile, the ECSL has also decided to call for a key meeting with the secretaries of accepted political parties at 10 a.m. on 23 March. The ECSL said the decision to hold a discussion with all political parties was taken at yesterday’s Commission meeting. While it was expected that the ECSL would make an announcement on postal voting and the Local Government election due to the prevailing uncertainty, no such announcement was made following the meeting.
