As at 12 this afternoon a voter turnout of 50 percent has been reported at the Presidential Elections, according to the election watchdog PAFFREL. This excludes the Northern and Eastern provinces.

“Voter turnout had been around 50 per-cent in the South of the country, this excludes the North and the East where the turn out can be given as a rough estimate of 20 per-cent,” acting Director of PAFFREL Rohana Hettiarachchi told Daily Mirror Online.

There are 14,088,500 registered voters at 10,875 polling stations around the country. Of that number 1247 polling stations are in the Jaffna, Vanni, Batticaloa, Trincomalee and Puttalam electoral districts with a total of 2,058,686 registered voters.

    No wonder it's only 20% turn out from IDPs'. Poor MR suckers have attempted to reduce votes for SF.
