More than 200,000 flood victims living in camps have lost their national identity cards due to the recent floods and will not be able to participate in the upcoming local government elections, the UNP said today.

UNP MP P. Harrison said that flood victims had lost all their possessions due to the floods and do not have the necessary means to participate in the March 17 Local Government elections.

He said that most flood victims had lost all their relevant documents and do not have the means to apply for new national identity cards. “We need to seek methods of making arrangements to provide new identity cards for the flood victims,” he said. (OJ)

    The flood effected people are in no condition even to think about elections or casting their votes. All they need at this time is some relief and not identification documents to vote. Has the UNP helped in any way instead of criticizing the authorities who are trying to do something for the victims? They are even against postponing the polls!

    Rather than telling UNP to do so ask your leaders to donate 0.01 percent of the wealth amassed during the past 5 years by all members and relatives of the regime for the flood victims. That will make the flood victims the richest in SL
