* Sri Lanka's Marxist party commences public awareness campaign on election law violations
Tue, Mar 18, 2014, 09:18 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 18, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) has commenced a campaign to create awareness among the public about election law violations in the country.

The campaign was launched today with a leaflet distribution campaign in the Fort area.

JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake said at the event that there needs to be a free and fair election where political parties compete with each other using their capabilities, assets and by mobilizing their members and supporters.

He noted that under the current administration, elections have become a contest between political parties and the government.

"Every political party contests elections using their resources. However, the ruling party is contesting the election as the government. The true mandate of the people could only be viewed in a scenario where every political party contests elections with their resources," Dissanayake pointed out.

He charged that the government is abusing state assets and property for the election and that election laws have been violated at the highest levels of the government.
