Democratic National Alliance (DNA) Leader Sarath Fonseka today said he expected the Elections Commissioner to do his duty by approving the Democratic Party as the necessary documents had been provided.
“Now the ball is on his side. It’s up to him to move forward and end the game; I humbly expect that the Elections Commissioner will approve the registration. As far as I understand he is satisfied with the documents we provided,” Mr. Fonseka said.
He said the documents were handed over to the Election Commissioner after the Human Rights Commission had ordered that the matter be reconsidered because the rejection of the application for registration was a violation of Human Rights.
Mr. Fonseka said the party would be headed by him with Ananda Manawadu as General Secretary and Jayantha Ketagoda as Deputy Leader.(Hasine Liyanage, Lahiru Pothmulla)
