PAFFREL will monitor elections covering every polling booth. Its Executive Director Rohana Hettiarachchi made this reference at a media briefing in Colombo today.
Mr. Hettiarachchi said they will be having stationed and mobile monitors. They have identified areas prone to issue. Plans are afoot to deploy additional mobile vehicles in these areas. Usually a mobile vehicle is scheduled to be deployed in one local authority area. But, he said they will be deploying more such vehicles in disputed areas.
The PAFFREL Head was optimistic of covering around 80 percent of the polling areas under this strategy.
