Postal Voting for the Local Government Election postponed indefinitely, National Election Commission announced.

Nimal G. Punchihewa made the announcement by informing the General Secretaries of all political parties in this regard.

The Election Commission Chairman revealed that this was due to the Government Printers refusing to print ballot papers until due payments are made.
