Although almost a week has passed since the Uva Provincial Council Poll concluded, there seems to be no end to the tensions in the province.

The various political parties and groups continue to express criticism and opinion on this matter.

Politburo Member of JVP, K.D. Lalkantha expressed these views:

“The election in the South concluded with no violence. The election in the West and North also concluded with no violence. In Uva there were many acts of violence. Sometimes, it is possible that the attack strategy is to corner the Elections Commissioner. Political parties contesting the elections do not compete against the political parties but against the government. They have to compete against, the police, public institutions and state money. They lay foundation stones for new projects. They lay the foundation stone previously and plan completion for close to the election. This must be stopped through election laws but the Elections Commissioner does not do this.”
