Presidential Candidate General Sarath Fonseka, speaking to reporters a short while ago, called on the Elections Commissioner Dayananda Dissanayaka to annul the outcome of the 2010 Presidential Elections. He said he has sent a letter to the Elections Commissioner giving reasons why the poll should be annuled.
General Sarath Fonseka said that he will take legal action to annul the polls. Among the concerns raised by the General was the inability for some IDPs to cast their vote, the misuse of state property and allegations raised against him by the State media.
He also said that he has contacted foreign missions in Colombo over the situation which had developed outside the hotel he is at the moment with troops surrounding the area.
