Media spokesman, Keerthi Tennekoon of CaFFE stated that, because the Elections Commissioner is taking no action against election law violations at this forthcoming Southern provincial Council elections, some of the candidates are openly and brazenly committing breach of election laws. As such this election will go down in election history as one where election malpractices were openly allowed to be committed.At other elections, the elections Commissioner who holds discussions with the party secretaries weekly has had no discussions this time. The Commissioner has not even replied to the letter addressed to him by CaFFE in this regard. The Elections Commissioner has descended to such a level, CaFFE pinpointed. These facts were disclosed at a media briefing today (1) when he spoke about the present situation regarding the elections. The Elections Commissioner gave orders to remove the elections advertisements on either sides of his Office only after the media exposed these illegal acts. If the Elections Commissioner had any interest in halting these election malpractices, he has all the power to take action, he asserted.
