COLOMBO (News 1st):- The National Elections Commission states that 33 new political parties have placed admissions for registration.

A spokesperson of the commission stated that this includes the Pivithuru Hela Urumaya party led by Udaya Gammanpila. Thereby, the commission has appointed a seven-member committee to inspect the registration of new political parties.

The spokesperson further stated that they began accepting applications for new parties on the 16th of January and will continue to do so till the 17th of February. All political parties that submit admission within this time period will be measured based on their qualifications and registered.
