Chairman of the Election Commission Mahinda Deshapriya congratulated all contestants and also acknowledged all stakeholders for assisting in assuring the conduct of a free and fair election.

Voting for the 2019 Presidential Election was worked-off between 7am and 5pm yesterday at 12,845 polling centres.

The issuance of results commenced around 2am today owing to a number of reasons.

Despite Sajith Premadasa claiming victories in the early hours in the Jaffna and Vanni Districts, Gotabaya Rajapaksa powered his way through to the lead following the release of postal ballots and votes from the Southern Province.
