Sri Lanka suspends releasing final result of parliamentary election

Sri Lanka has suspended releasing the final result of the parliamentary election. The country's election department made the decision because of illegal activities at some polls.

The latest counting shows the ruling United People's Freedom Alliance claimed a landslide victory by securing 117 of the 225 seats. Its closest rival, the United National Party, won 46 seats. Another opposition party led by former army chief, General Sarath Fonseka, won five seats.

The election department called for a re-vote at 38 polling stations in two districts. A date has yet to be announced.
