Polls chief to political parties:
'Follow nomination guidelines, avoid rejection'
Elections Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya yesterday urged political
parties to pay special attention to nomination paper guidelines issued
by his office to prevent them from being rejected.
Election authorities have also added a new rule at the forthcoming PC
polls for Eastern, North Central and Sabaragamuwa, which says that
nomination papers that are not handed over with a copy of the original
will be rejected .
The nominations will be accepted from July 12, 2012 and ends at noon
on July 19.
The Commissioner said he will make political parties aware on the
guidelines at a meeting with them today.
