A large number of ballot papers of the 2010 presidential election with the vote marked to ‘Swan’, the election symbol of Gen. Sarath Fonseka, have been found near Kalagedihena MV adjoining Colombo – Kandy road.

The official ballot papers found yesterday (24th) morning were of Nuwaraeliya District. Finding ballot papers at various places that should be kept locked in Election Secretariat has given rise to serious suspicion regarding the result of the election.

The office of Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa is very close to the school from where the ballot papers have been found.

Before the results of the 2010 presidential election were announced there was pandemonium at the Election Secretariat and then Commissioner of Elections Dayananda Dishanayake publicly said he was under stress.

General Fonseka and many others said the election was a fraud and did not accept the result as correct.

400 ballot papers have been found by Nittambuwa Police on information given by a person by phoning 119.
