Election Laws Violated

Aug 22, 2011 9:58:52 AM - thesundayleader.lk

Independent elections monitor People’s Action for a Free and Fair Elections (PAFFREL) says that incidents of election law violations are being reported even before the handing over of nominations are concluded for 23 local government bodies.

Executive Director of PAFFREL, Rohana Hettiarachchi has said that while some parties are already engaged in propaganda work even before handing over nominations, complaints have been received of the governing UPFA granting appointments to local government bodies that are to face elections in October.

He has said the police needed to take firm action against the election law violations.

However, Hettiarachchi has observed that the Elections Commissioner would be duly informed of the violation of election laws.
