The Cabinet has decided to hold the next General Election only after constitutional changes take place for new electoral reforms, Cabinet Spokesperson Minister Rajitha Senaratne said.
According to the government 100-day pledge, it was scheduled to prepare new election laws in accordance with the proposals put forward by the all party committees by 2 March, and pass the new system by 17 March.
However, the Minister added that the Government might take more time to make the proposed reforms, if 100-days period is not enough.
