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.
