Government is planning to introduce the same electoral system for all elected bodies, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe told Parliament yesterday.   


The Premier made this remark in response to questions raised by the Opposition on the local government electoral system.   

“Government has mulled the idea of having a same electoral system for Parliament, Provincial Councils and local government bodies rather than having separate system for the three institutions,” he said.   

“ Let’s discuss this matter pertaining to the electoral system instead of dragging it ,” he added.
