However, ahead of this, the president will obtain a report from the medical experts on the prevailing situation of the country.
In a special letter last Monday, the Chairman of the Elections Commission had urged the president to consult the Supreme Court with regard to the date of the Gen. election.
Accordingly, the president has sought necessary legal advice and the Presidential Secretariat had subsequently informed the Elections Commission that the president will consult the Supreme Court only if the election cannot be held on the newly announced date as well.
However, the Elections Commission has convened a special meeting on April 19 to discuss the prevailing situation and take necessary steps.
