Sri Lanka faces costliest election, longest ballot paper

15 3 0

A RECORD number of candidates for Sri Lanka’s presidential poll next month has led to the longest-ever ballot paper and the most expensive vote in the country’s history, the Election Commission said Tuesday.

Thirty five candidates are running in the November 16 poll, the highest number in any single ballot, Elections Commission chief Mahinda Deshapriya told reporters in Colombo.
