No acts of violence have been reported to CaFFE from the Nawalapitiya, Kandy and Kumburupiddi, Trincomalee election re poll areas. Hence CaFFE would like to firstly declare that the election activities in re polling areas were conducted peacefully during this election. In addition to this the protection of election laws which had been disregarded earlier was a visibly key characteristic during this pre election period. However, CaFFE notes that while there were no reports of physical violence in the areas in which re polling took place, there was definitely indications of psychological intimidation of voters.
