UNP makes complaint to EC over SJB using green colour for poll campaign

Akila Viraj Kariyawasam

The United National Party (UNP) General Secretary Akila Viraj Kariyawasam has made a complaint to the Chairman of the Election Commission Mahinda Deshapriya with regard to Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) using green color for their election campaign.


He submitted the objection in a letter addressed to Chairman of the Election Commission. He stated that green colour is official party color of UNP as per the party constitution, whereas as per the SJB party constitution, the official party color of SJB is the blue color. The use of the green color by the SJB instead of blue for their electoral campaign was a deliberate attempt to mislead UNP supporters; and this adversely affected the election campaign of the UNP.

He pleaded with the Commission to look into the matter and take immediate steps to prevent SJB from using green color for their election campaign.
