Election Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya today informed political party representatives that 68 per cent of the candidates had declared their assets.
Nearly 4183 candidates comprising 262 candidates from each political party contesting the election had declared their assets. Of them, 261 candidates from the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), 232 from the United National Party (UNP) and 220 from the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) have declared their assets.
It was mentioned at this meeting that some of the candidates who served as MPs in the previous parliament had not handed over their vehicles and the election authorities stressed the need for party representatives to act in this regard.
Only the Cabinet Ministers are allowed to use their vehicles after making a payment to the relevant ministries. (Kelum Bandara)

Are you going to check how accurate these declarations are? If they are understatements, even with relations and friends holding the assets as proxies, what you are going to do? Will you take their seats away?

Please Please - publish them on your website for the public to see the UPFA and UNP assets.
