SLFP sidelines SLMC, EPDP in Mannaar local elections

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 01 February 2011, 23:51 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) and the EPDP, constituents of the ruling United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) have been completely rejected from the lists of candidates fielded in the local elections in the Mannaar district. The SLMC led by SL Minister Rauff Hakeem was forced to file separate nominations to contest the Piratheasa Chapais (PS) of Maanthai West, Musali and Mannaar, as SL minister Rishad Bathiudeen selected candidates from Mahinda Rajapaksa's SLFP, against the assurances the UPFA had given to SLMC and the EPDP, sources in Mannaar said.

The SLMC, which had to file separate nominations, didn't manage to hand over its list, which it prepared at the last minute, to contest Mannaar Urban Coucil.

Tamil National Alliance (TNA), United National Party (UNP) and United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) are contesting the Mannaar UC, Mannaar PS, Maanthai West PS, Musali PS and Naanaaddaan PS.
