8 SLPP-supported candidates ‘cannot be identified’ Featured

Identification problems have arisen with regard to eight candidates who contested under the ‘bicycle’ symbol for Maharagama urban council with the support of the SLPP.

When the national identity card numbers they have given are entered in the electoral register database, the response is ‘the name cannot be found.’

They are Menikpura Devage Kanchana Madhushini (966291257V), Rajapaksa Mohottige Karolis (330151656), Bombuwala Devage Josephine (475660887V), Hasini Ruwanthi (969354050V) Induruwanage Nadika Kumari (917913412V), Devage Wimalawathi (385800671V), Pinnawala Katugahage Susila Nandawathi (455450110V) and Ranadheerage Lakmali Dilrukshi (806261238V).

The media has reported that the list had been prepared with the involvement of Samanmali Sakalasuriya, daughter-in-law of joint opposition leader Dinesh Gunawardena.

An election commission spokesman said they could do nothing about it since the election had already taken place.

However, legal experts are of the view that the aggrieved parties could obtain a writ over from courts against the eight.
