UPFA files petition against rejection of nominations to Akmeemana local body

Feb 3, 2011 10:24:08 AM - itnnews.lk

The United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) has filed a petition in the Appeals Court against the rejection of its nominations handed in for the Akmeemana Pradeshiya Sabha.

Freedom Alliance General Secretary Susil Premajayantha filed the petition. Officials including the Elections Commissioner have been cited as the respondents. The petitioner claims that the nomination list concerned had been turned down citing a fault in an Affidavit of a candidate. Emphasising that it was illegal, the petitioner calls on the Appeals Court to order the Elections Chief to accept the nomination list.
