Many candidates of the ruling party are engaged in election violence and violations but the Commissioner of Elections or the Police are unable to control them says the General Secretary of the JVP Tilvin Silva.

While his party contests the election without asking for preference votes or without any personal goals for its candidates the government is unleashing violence for their personal gains and to grab power said the General Secretary of the JVP.

Mr. Tilvin Silva further said the opposition parties have to engage in election campaigns in the North amidst obstructions and harassment of the security forces.
