Sri Lanka's Cabinet has approved the introduction of a new electoral reform bill, which seeks to replace the proportional representation system now in force. The new bill is to be sent to the Supreme Court to determine its legality.

According to the proposed new electoral law, the forthcoming general elections will be held on a mixed system of both proportional representation and first-past-the-post, sources said.
