High polling in clustered booths for Killinochchi voters

[TamilNet, Friday, 02 April 2004, 11:08 GMT]
High polling was recorded in the clustered polling stations located in the Muhamalai area for voters residing in the LTTE controlled Killinochchi district and villages in the Vadamaradchchi east division in the Jaffna district. Around noon, sixty percent of the voters have voted in the sixty two polling stations, 30 for Killinochchi district voters and 32 for Vadamaradchchi east division voters in the LTTE held areas, election department sources said.

About 60,600 registered voters in the LTTE held Killinochchi district and Vadamaradchchi east division in the Jaffna district are eligible for exercise their franchise, sources said

The districts of Killinochchi and Jaffna form the Jaffna electoral district, sources said.

In some polling stations election agents of the paramilitary group Eelam Peoples Democratic Party (EPDP) raised objections when voters went there to cast their votes, which resulted in the arguments between the EPDPers and election officials.

Later EPDP polling agents withdrew from those polling stations, sources in Muhamalai said.

In the other parts of the Jaffna electoral district under the government-controlled areas more than fifty percent of voters completed their voting by two p.m., election department sources said.
