The counting of the ballots and announcing the results of the General Election re-poll in Kumburupitiya in the Trincomalee District has been shifted to the Trincomalee divisional secretariat from the Kumburupitiya polling center on the advice of the police.

Elections Department officials said that according to the police intelligence agencies had cautioned the counting and releasing of results from the Kumburupitiya polling center itself late in the evening, as was earlier decided, could face a threat from LTTE operatives who may still be in the area.

As a result it was now decided to only conduct the re-poll at the center on Tuesday and count the ballots and later release the results from the Trincomalee divisional secretariat. (Daily Mirror online)
