‘Mark only one cross on ballot paper’

Election commission chairman Mahinda Deshapriya says just one cross should be marked in the ballot paper at the upcoming mini-polls.

A ballot paper with more than one cross mark will be rejected, he
told a meeting at the Elections Secretariat at Rajagiriya yesterday (09).

The ballot paper is without space for preferential voting, and a cross should be marked against the party or the independent group of choice only, he added.
