Sunday, 11 August 2013 - 7:59


Elections Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya says that through awareness it would be possible to prevent state property from being used for election propaganda activities.


Election Monitors point out that candidates who are related to political stalwarts are illegally using state property for propaganda activities.


The Central and North Western Provinces have had the most number of incidents as a large number of relatives of politicians are contesting the elections.


However, this is what Elections Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya had to say.




Meanwhile, Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe stated that the forthcoming provincial council election should be made an election that would express a collective opposition.




However, Minister Nimal Siripala De Silva speaking at a meeting that was held in Kandy stated that the final decision lies with the general public.
