EC summons Parties not represented in legislature


The Election Commission of Sri Lanka has decided to summon political parties that do not have representation in Parliament at present, for a round of discussions.

Accordingly, secretaries of such parties have been summoned to the Election Commission on 23 August.

The EC mainly intends to discuss the proposals presented by Parliamentary Select Committee on Election Law Reforms with political party representatives. The EC said it is in the process of formulating a programme to implement the said proposals.

Around 50 registered political parties in the country have no representation in the current Parliament, and the EC has already held discussions with 15 political parties that are represented in Parliament.
