Polls Chief drives SLFP candidate off the road
Election Commission Chair man Mahinda Deshap r i ya was in Jaffna this week to oversee election arrangements and discuss related issues with officials in the peninsula.
It was brought to his attention that there were complaints that Angan Ramanathan contesting under the SLFP ticket had publicised certain ongoing road projects which he claimed were the result of his own action.
Mr Deshapriya directed that boards be placed in areas where construction work was now under way, saying the projects were Government backed.
