Elections Commission Chairman Mahinda Deshapriya said yesterday that three queues would be set up for the first time at polling stations with more than 2,500 registered voters this time.

Mr. Deshapriya told the Daily Mirror that his office decided to do this for the first time because of difficulties in handling lengthened ballot papers.

He made these remarks when he met representatives of political parties and independent groups contesting the presidential elections. The commission convened the meeting to brief them about logistical arrangements for the presidential polls to be conducted tomorrow.

At the meeting, Mr. Deshapriya criticised three provincial governors for engaging in politics in the run-up to the elections despite his warnings.

He told political party representatives yesterday it would take action against these provincial governors. He also said he would not allow them to act as authorised agents of any party at this election.

The polling time will also be extended by one hour - till 5.00 pm - this time because of the lengthened ballot paper. (Kelum Bandara)
