PAFFREL Interim Report on the Sri Lanka Presidential Election 2019

Described as "the most peaceful and free election held since 1982," the People's Action for Free and Fair Elections (PAFFREL) in Sri Lanka said in the interim report of their observation of the 16 November 2019 Presidential Election.

PAFFREL, however, said in the report published on 27 December 2019 that "this year's presidential election was free, but not fair, and there were a number of factors that had affected this situation."

PAFFREL outlined a number of recommendations to the Election Commission and the Legislature on the conduct of the election including the media, social media, voting centers, identification cards, overseas voting, campaign expenditure, and election complaint mechanism, among others.
