North Western UPFA Provincial Council election candidate and former MP Dayasiri Jayasekera says that certain persons are hatching a plot to change his vote count through a computer ploy.
Later, our news team contacted the Kurunegala District Election Secretariat to verify this allegation.
A senior officer attached to the District Election Secretariat told our news team that certain candidates make such allegation due to their ignorance of the vote counting mechanism.
However a seminar to educate all election candidates about the vote counting mechanism will be held at the PC auditorium on the 18th of this month.
The Election Official invites all the candidates to participate in the seminar first and, challenges them to make statements of this nature afterwards if possible.
