Nominations for the elections to the Northern, Central and North Western (Wayamba) Provincial councils will be accepted between July 25 and August 1, the Department of Elections said.
The date for the elections to the three provinces will be subsequently announced, sources at the Department said.
Meanwhile the People’s Action for Free and Fair Elections (PAFFREL) had a discussion with the Elections Commissioner last evening.
The discussions focused on preparations for the elections in the three provinces.
Elections for the three provinces are expected to take place in September.
The Northern Provincial Council was established by a proclamation by the President last week while the other two provinces were dissolved and elections announced. (Colombo Gazette)
