Thu, Mar 13, 2014, 08:11 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 13, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party, Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) today complained to the Elections Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya about the many election law violations by the governing United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) candidates.

JVP Chief Ministerial candidate for the Western Provincial Council, K.D. Lalkantha told the media after meeting Deshapriya that the government was blatantly violating election laws.

He explained that the latest violation by the government is to carry out an illegal electioneering under the pretext of a 10-day long signature campaign from Tangalle to Gampaha covering the six districts where provincial council elections will be held on the 29th of this month.

He noted that the government is to commence the 10-day campaign from tomorrow.

According to Lalkantha, the Elections Commissioner had agreed that the signature campaign was a violation of election laws and had assured he would prevent it.

"The Elections Commissioner discussed the matter with the relevant elections officials in the six districts and requested them to prevent the campaign from being carried out," the JVP member said.
