Committee to probe if political parties named on racial, religious basis

The Elections Commission has decided to appoint a five-member committee headed by an Additional Elections Commissioner to look into and report whether registered political parties had been named on religious or racial basis.

The decision was taken at the meeting of the Elections Commission held yesterday.

The Committee will also look into whether the constitutions of the registered recognized political parties include clauses related to religious or racial matters.

The Chairman and the Secretary of the Elections Commission and another member of the Commission are expected to supervise the task of the committee. (Ajith Siriwardana)
