President Gotabaya Rajapaksa yesterday said the voter turnout of 71% at the General Election, reflected the confidence that Sri Lankans have in the government’s efforts to control the 
COVID-19 pandemic.   

“I am glad to know that today’s all-island voter turnout was nearly 71%. As the first South Asian country to hold general elections amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, it reflects the confidence that the people have in our efforts to control this pandemic,” the president tweeted last evening.   


President Rajapaksa cast his vote for the General Election 2020 at Sri Vivekaramaya Temple in Pangiriwatta, Nugegoda last morning. First Lady Ayoma Rajapaksa also cast her vote.   
Earlier yesterday, the President requested voters to cast their votes without any fear of the COVID-19 pandemic saying that activities at all polling centres have been arranged in line with the guidelines issued by the health authorities.
