Revision of votersí lists begins
The revision of voters lists for 2014 which commenced on Friday will
conclude on June 15. Nearly 14,000 Grama Niladharis across the country
have been trained for the purpose, Deputy Elections Commissioner M.M.
Mohamed told the Sunday Observer yesterday.
Revision work will be carried out under the supervision of Deputy
Elections Commissioners at district level, he said.
He said that the Grama Seva Niladharis will issue enumeration forms
to every household in their Divisions.
The presidential election or general election to be held next year
will be on the basis of the votersí list 2014, he said.
The perfected enumeration forms will be collected on June 2 because
under the Elections Act 1980 one qualifies as a voter on June 1 every
year, he said.
