The possibility made available to candidates who forfeit their deposits to be selected as members of the local bodies is a clear manifestation that the new election system is unfair and anomalous, said ex-President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Hence with a view to eliminate these irregularities, all political parties should ensure that these anomalies are eliminated, he added.

“Any political party that wins is entitled to rule, and the representatives should be appointed in accordance with that. It is the failed group which is creating impediments. Therefore, everyone must remember that the masses are fully alert and awake in the circumstances,” he pointed out.

While roundly condemning the attack launched on the farming community in Tambuttegama, he went on to highlight the arrest of 59 farmers by the Police, which had plunged their families into deep despair.
