TNA accuses EPDP for voter fraud in the islets of Jaffna

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 26 January 2010, 03:04 GMT]
Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Jaffna parliamentarians accused Eelam People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) for having taken large number of persons to the islets of Jaffna with the intention of committing voter fraud, sources in Jaffna said. Meanwhile, EPDP men have instructed the post masters in the islets of Jaffna to issue polling cards to persons without calling for their identity documents and that EPDP supporters have collected the polling cards of many persons in many parts of Jaffna peninsula, TNA parliamentarians further accused.

Already, a large number of Vanni IDPs had been brought to the islets of Jaffna which is under the full control of Sri Lanka Navy(SLN) and efforts are being made by supporters of the ruling party to use their votes in favour of Mahinda Rajapakse, they said.

Similar election frauds and rigging had taken place in the past in the islets of Jaffna and election officers should pay attention to this, they said.
