The Final Report on the Presidential Election 1999

The Final Report on the Presidential Election 1999 comprises six parts. The first provides an outline of the nature and scope of the task undertaken, and describes the methodology adopted. The second is a summary and analysis of violence during the election campaign, covering the period November 13, 1999 to December 20, 1999. The third part is an account of islandwide violence during election day, December 21, 1999, and an analysis of how this affected the result of the poll. Included in this section is a sampling of Major Incidents that took place in the electorates on this day. Part Four is a short section on post-election violence, which is not meant to be exhaustive or systematic, but rather a simple pointer to another disturbing re-emergent trend in Sri Lankan politics. The fifth part of this report contains the recommendations of CMEV for future elections. Part Six takes the form of an appendix, which contains the detailed results of the 1999 Presidential Election.

The Report can be downloaded as Adobe PDF files – Part I & II , Part III and Part IV.
