The Elections Secretariat says that Rs.3.25 billion was spent thus far, on the upcoming general elections. The Secretariat said that a larger cost would be borne this time around compared to the previous election.

The reason for the increased cost is  being attributed to the fact that ballot papers varied from district to district. The Election Secretariat has taken steps to provide Rs.475 million to the Police Department for the expenses of the posters, banners, cutouts and the duties of police officers.

The Secretariat added that 75 million has already been provided to the police for the removal of posters, banners and cutouts.
