Postponed EC press conference moved to 10.30am Monday

The Election Commission (EC)'s press conference on the general election results was postponed on Sunday night due to difficulties in vote counting.

The commission had originally aimed to hold the conference at 8.30pm.

The EC's public relations department said the postponement was caused by some polling stations facing rains and flooding, thus preventing the officials from submitting the votes on time.

The press conference will be held at 10.30am on Monday, it added.
