The elections department is preparing to lodge a complaint with the Fraud Investigation Bureau claiming that the National Development Front, which was barred from giving nominations, had produced false nominations during the previous provincial council election.


A senior spokesperson for the elections secretariat stated that the National Development Front had presented false nominations for the Jaffna, Kurunegala and Puttalam districts.


The assistant elections commissioners in charge of those districts have also lodged complaints with police in this regard.


The elections commissioner has barred the National Development Front from presenting nominations for any election on the grounds that several parties hold claim to the secretarial position of the party.


Elections Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya stated that despite this the National Development Front had presented false nominations during the recently concluded provincial council election.
