The Police Election Secretariat has so far received 169 complaints according to Chief of the Police Election Secretariat Senior DIG Gamini Navaratne.
Of the complaints, 95% are reported to be minor complaints, some involving drunken supporters.
DIG Navaratne’s comments follow allegations by UNP Ampara district organizer Daya Gamage that election violence is on the rise and opposition UNP and JVP activists have been harassed and their party offices subject to attacks.
DIG Navaratne however stated that vehicle checks are to be stepped up and that more measures will be taken to tighten security as elections draw closer. (KA)
