Colombo: Sri Lanka has shelved plans to change its electoral system from proportional representation to first-past-the-post for at least for the time being, a senior minister said Wednesday.

President Mahinda Rajapaksa's United People's Freedom Alliance had wanted to conduct next year's local council elections under a first-past-the-post, but drawing up individual constituencies and wards would take more time.
