Doubts over Jaffna elections?

[TamilNet, Friday, 19 December 1997, 23:59 GMT]
No one filed nominations to contest in the loacl government elections in Jaffna for the fourth consecutive day today.

All parties which intend to file nominations are adopting a wait and see approach as they feel that the government might postpone the elections on the eleventh hour in view of the unfavourable ground situation in Jaffna.

Sources said that Sri Lanka's Elections Commissioner has informed the government about some of the practical problems arising in connection with holding the election in Jaffna, such as the difficulty in finding the required number of returning officers and vehicles for carrying out election duties.
