* Re-polling in Kandy and Trincomalee districts of Sri Lanka scheduled on April 20
Sat, Apr 10, 2010, 07:43 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 10, Colombo: Re-poll of the general elections at the annulled polling divisions in Kandy and Trincomalee districts is to be held on April 20, the Election Department announced. The relevant gazette notification will be issued later today.

Re-polling has been called for certain centers in Nawalapitiya polling division of Kandy District and Kumburupitiya in Trincomalee District.

The counting of votes from Nawalapitiya was suspended and results were annulled by the Election Commissioner on Thursday due to several complaints he received on severe violations of election laws.

The Elections commissioner annulled the results from one of the centers in Kumburupitiya, in Trincomalee District when a group forced their way into the center and stole most of the ballot papers.

The Elections Department will not officially release the island wide results of the 2010 general election until the final results of the Nawalapitiya electorate in the Kandy district is released after the re-poll.
