Election Commissioner blamed for KP’s press conference

KP addressing media

K P press 410px 19-09-13United National Party (UNP) has made a written request from the Election Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya to hold an immediate inquiry regarding the press conference held by Kumaran Pathmanathan alias KP yesterday (18) in Kilinochchi with the help of the Army.

The letter has been dispatched to the Election Commissioner under the signature of the UNP Secretary MP Tissa Attanayake.

Mr. Attanayake, in his letter to the Election Commissioner, has stated that due to the lethargic policy of the Election Commissioner in not taking any action with regards to the countless complaints lodged about the misuse of state property by the Govt in the election campaign, the final outcome has been the broad daylight violation of  electoral law conducted by certain personnel in the Army and the Defense Ministry.

The letter further states that the media meeting has been organized by the Kilinochchi security forces HQ by suing its resources in support of the election campaign in the PC polls
