The Elections Commission has requested Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardene to mediate to release required funds for the Local Government elections.
Elections Commission Chairman Nimal Punchihewa in a letter to the Speaker has requested him to intervene to release funds as the Parliament has the Power over Public Finance and funds have already been allocated for the election by Parliament through the budget.
He said the Commission will meet in Friday and decide a new date to hold the LG polls.(Ajith Siriwardana)
