Voting will commence at 7:00 a.m Saturday and will end at 4:00 p.m.

Postal votes will be counted at 4:00 p.m and the final results are expected to be announced after midnight Saturday, Jaffna Secretariat sources said.

Election Monitoring Committees in Jaffna are actively engaged in their duties.

Police are busy applying black paint on the poster and bills pasted on the walls in Jaffna town.

Meanwhile, Tamil National Alliance (TNA), United National Party (UNP) and the Independent Groups contesting JMC election accused the police for partiality having failed to remove the banners and posters with the images of President Mahinda Rajapakse and Minister Douglas Devananda, sources in Jaffna said.

A sense of anxiety prevails in Jaffna as to how the election will be conducted.
