The News 1st correspondent reports that party leaders and members of the Common Opposition are engaged in a protest outside the Elections Secretariat, Thursday afternoon.

The demonstrators demand  an equal platform to contest for the presidential polls and requested the law to not be allowed to be violated by the misuse of state property and that justice should be meted out accordingly.

Although the group attempted to handover a letter to the elections commissioner with these details, the commissioner was not in office at this time.

Speaking to News 1st, Additional Elections Commissioner U. Amaradasa stated that he has accepted the letter and that it will be handed over to the Elections Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya upon his arrival.
