Around 100,000 voters had registered themselves in two different places in the 2009 Voters List, the Election Commissioner’s Department said.

Due to findings – as a result of computerised checks and controls, the list had to be corrected and therefore the releasing of the 2009 Voters List had been affected causing a delay, a senior official of the Elections Secretariat said.In the Colombo District alone, around 33,000 voters had registered themselves in two different places.  The figure in Gampaha had been 12,000 and in Kalutara District it had been 5,000 voters.

Although the 2009 Voters List had not been released so far it has now been approved by the Elections Secretariat.
