Dec 15, Colombo: Transparency International of Sri Lanka has lodged a complaint before the Election Commissioner regarding massive violation of election regulations by President Mahinda Rajapaksa at his inaugural election rally held last week in Anuradhapura.

Transparency International has pointed out that the President had used over 1000 buses of Sri Lanka Transport Board to transport people from far away areas to the rally.

This has caused immense difficulty for the public and the students sitting for the G.C.E. Ordinary Level examination who had to seek other means of transport due to lack of buses.

Transparency International also mentioned in the complaint that the state owned television channels Sri Lanka Rupavahini Corporation and Independent Television Network had broadcast the political rally live violating election regulations. Independent Television Network alone has spent over two million rupees for this.

Transparency International has further mentioned about large number of other violations of election regulations like displaying election propaganda material in public building mainly by the ruling party candidate President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
