Local Government Elections are due to be held on or before December 9, 2017,  according to the Elections Commission.

The Elections Commissioner says there is a decline in the number of voter registration. He put it down to increasing discontent towards politics and other reasons.

Steps have been taken to rectify the situation, said the Commissioner. He also added that the highest number of decline in voter registration has been reported from Colombo and its suburbs.
