FAS’ Reply To Media Query Regarding Postponement Of FAS Election


“The Ad Hoc Electoral Committee (EC) has no power to postpone or call off the election of the FAS Council and as at this moment knows of no reason for any disruption of the elections.

The duties of the EC are primarily to supervise the administrative process relating to the FAS Council elections. Bearing this in mind, the EC is of the view that it will not be proper for the EC to comment and or give its views  on the matters which are being raised in the press and media. The Electoral Code requires the EC to act independently and impartially‚Äù.



– Mr K. Bala Chandran, Chairperson of the Ad Hoc Electoral Committee
