His Worship called at the Campus polling booth on August 17 in the company of the Green party chief as on previous occasions to cast his vote.



The Green party chief and his wife who were ahead of him in the queue cast their votes and when his turn came His worship handed his identity card to the clerk concerned.

“Sorry, Sir, we can’t accept this identity card. You have to produce your national identity card for us to issue the ballot paper,” the clerk said handing back the card to His Worship.

“Don’t you know that I am the city mayor?” an exasperated mayor asked the clerk.

“We know that, Sir,” replied the clerk. “But you have to produce the NIC or any other document valid under the law.”

It transpired that His Worship had produced the official card that identifies him as the city mayor.

His Worship did vote later after going back home and coming back with the precious NIC, they say.

    Trust that this type of strict enforcement of law will prevail always, irrespective of who the person is.
