An injunction has been sought from the Supreme Court to prevent displaying election propaganda posters, banners, cut-outs and other such material at public places during the period of the presidential election.

Parisara Yukthi Kendraya which filed the petition had named the Central Environment Authority, the Inspector General of Police and the Attorney General as respondents.

The petitioner points out that the Central Environment Authority has already prepared a guideline to prevent visual pollution by displaying such propaganda, but it has failed to implement it so far.

Therefore, the petitioner requested the Supreme Court to order the respondents to take immediate action to prevent such visual propaganda.

The Election Commission and the police inspected the Housing Development Authority for the second day today over a complaint of offering letters of appointment by violating election rules.

An Election Commission spokesman stated that the inspecting officials observed that the authority has prepared to offer exactly 2 thousand 800 jobs.

The Commission also checked the authority on a complaint that it was preparing to make permanent a large number of casual workers on the instruction of subject minister Sajith Premadasa.

The Election Commission officials have taken into custody the so-called letters of appointment and suspended the attempt by the Housing Development Authority.

In addition, a group of workers complained today that 5 double cabs belonging to the authority have been deployed for election campaigns.

At the same time, MP Vasudeva Nanayakkara made another complaint of an attempt by the Prime Minister to promote Sajith Premadasa by offering grants to tea small holders.

MP Nanayakkara also made another complaint to the Election Commission about the suspension of service of the training director of the National Language Ministry.

Meanwhile, a Director of the National Elders Secretariat, Saman Udawatta made a complaint to the Election commission that his service has been suspended for not following the orders issued by Minister Daya Gamage.

In addition, it is reported that new recruitments have been made to the Colombo National Hospital as well.
