UNP to hold islandwide protests against unfair treatment

The UNP will hold a series of public protests countrywide against what it claims as unfair treatment to the party during the recent Provincial Council Elections in the East, UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake told The Island yesterday.

Attanayake said the series of public protests started in Colombo on May 16. Protests are scheduled to be held in Trincomalee, Ampara and Batticaloa. It was known that large scale ballot rigging had taken place in Tirukkovil in the Ampara District.

The public believed that a free and fair election did not take place in the East and legal action will also be taken soon to challenge the election he said.

All sections including the JVP believe that the UNP would have won the Eastern Provincial Council election if not for the corrupt practices the Government had engaged in, Attanayake further said.
