The country's youth between the ages 16 to 30 years are not in favour of the present election system, casting of votes, registering for votes and the Parliament, Elections Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya to the media at the Elections Secretariat today.

Having interviewed several youth, he said the Elections Secretariat figured out that the youth did not care about politics in the country.

“There was an interest created regarding the Provincial Council elections in the Eastern, North Central and Sabaragamuwa in 2012. During the two elections held in the 2015 the interest peaked. But now the youths say they are not interested in Parliament or the elections,” he said.

“Nowadays most of the youth have no idea of going to voting centres,” he said.

The main responsibility of the Elections Commission was to register all citizens eligible for voting other than holding polls. (Chaturanga Pradeep)

    This is a global trend, not specific to Sri Lanka. Youngsters have other (more important) things to do in life than filthy politics I suppose.
