SLMC, independent group lists rejected in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Thursday, 25 June 2009, 09:21 GMT]
The Sri Lankan election authorities in Jaffna rejected the lists of Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) and an independent group headed by Arumugam Sellathurai to contest for the Jaffna Municipal Council elections as the lists were not complying with requirements of documentation, officials in Jaffna said Thursday. It is a statuary requirement that at least 12 of the candidates should be below the age of 35 and the rejected groups failed tailed to submit documentary evidence for all their candidates, the sources said. Even if one candidate doesn't fulfil the requirements, the entire list will be rejected.

As it stands now, the following are the groups and their symbols in the elections:

  • Tamil National Alliance: House
  • EPRLF (Varathar), PLOTE, TULF alliance: Rising Sun
  • United National Party: Elephant
  • United Peoples Freedom Alliance: Betel Leaf
  • Independent group (Manickasothy): Padlock
  • Independent group (Displaced Muslims): Ship
