Candidates contesting local govt polls under scrutiny


District Assistant Commissioners have been directed by the Election Commission to verify the backgrounds of local council candidates contesting the forthcoming local council polls and ascertain whether any of them has criminal records.

They will also check if Samurdhi officers and other such officers who have filed nominations had served in the area they are contesting from for at least a year. It will also be ascertained if the public service staff officers who contest had quit their jobs or taken no-pay leave.
