July 23, Colombo: Sri Lanka Election Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya has informed in writing to the Secretary of the North Central Provincial Council to direct the officials not to hold meetings in schools in a way the candidates of the upcoming North Central Provincial Council election can be benefited.

The Election Commissioner took these steps in response to a letter written by the President of the Ceylon Teachers' Union (CTU) Priyantha Fernando who has complained that the Chief Minister of the North Central Provincial Council Berty Premalal Dissanayaka is holding political type meetings in schools.

The Election Commissioner has sent copies of his letter to the Governor of the North Central Provincial Council, the Secretary of the Ministry of Education and the Zonal Directors of Education of the North Central Province.
