No move to block social media sites: EC

Election Commission Chairman Mahinda Deshapriya yesterday ruled out any plans to block social media websites during the last leg of the election period.

He told Daily Mirror that there was no need for such drastic moves though there was speculation about social media platforms such as Facebook may be blocked.

Earlier, Facebook announced that it had a mechanism to remove fake and malicious content which might mislead voters or discourage them from voting.
