Government Printer Gangani Kalpana Liyanage informed the Election Commission yesterday that since there is no sign of receiving money from the Treasury, they cannot start printing ballot papers for the forthcoming Local Government elections.
In her letter, she mentioned that ‘no response has been received from the Treasury to the queries whether the money will be given for the printing of ballot papers’.
Ms. Liyanage said that if the funds are received, the ballot papers can be printed in four to five days and the other election related printings could be printed in about 30 days.
She also informed that her department has only received Rs. 40 million for the printing of ballot papers.
She further mentioned that if the money is received by tomorrow, steps will be taken to print ballot papers from tomorrow itself.(Sujith Hewajulige)
