Polling cards for Vanni IDPs to be issued in Vavuniyaa

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 13 January 2010, 02:54 GMT]
The Commissioner of Elections has announced that the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) from Vanni held in the detention camps in Vavuniyaa will be issued with polling cards for the presidential election, from Tuesday at Vavuniyaa Maththiya Mahaa Viththiyaalayam. However, the Election Commissioner’s announcement did not say anything about the IDPs from Ki’linochchi district who are not permitted to resettle in their own places. Ki’linochchi district falls within Jaffna electoral district and this gives room for election rigging by the ruling party, according to allegations made by Tamil political observers in Jafnna.

There are around 50 voters divisions in Mullaiththeevu district and plans have been made to set up cluster polling booths in Vavuniyaa Maththiya Mahaa Vithiyaalayam for most of the voters from these divisions to cast their votes, the announcement said.

As resettlement is gradually taking plans in Maanthai East, Thu’nukkaay, Odduchuddaan and Karaithu’raippattu areas, polling cards will be posted to the voters in these areas to their home address.

The polling cards for voters from Puthukkudiruppu will be issued at Vavuniyaa Maththiya Maha Viththiyaalayam.
