Postal Voting for the 2023 Local Government Election was postponed indefinitely, said the National Election Commission of Sri Lanka today (February 14).

Sri Lanka’s Election Commission had previously planned to hold postal voting on February 22, 23 and 24.

The local government election is scheduled to be held on March 9, 2023.
