EC Accused Of Supporting Govt. Agenda

Mar 5, 2011 10:22:58 AM - thesundayleader.lk

Election monitoring group Campaign for Free and Fair Elections (CaFFE) has accused the Elections Commissioner of supporting the government’s deliberate move to postpone elections to several local government bodies.

CaFFE has said that the Elections Commissioner has supported the government’s agenda by postponing election to over 60 local government bodies.
CaFFE Director Keerthi Tennakoon has told the media that the failure to hold elections to all local government bodies simultaneously has created space for election malpractice to take place especially in the counting of votes.

Tennekoon has said that neither the Elections Department nor the Police Department were not taking the required measures to ensure effective implementation of election regulations.
