U.S. Embassy Expresses Concern over Reports of Elections Violence

Colombo, 21 September, (Asiantribune.com):

The U.S. Embassy notes reports of an attack on the residence of an electoral candidate, supporters, and members of a domestic elections monitoring NGO during the evening of September 19.

The Embassy expresses concern regarding the attack, especially in the lead-up to the Provincial Council elections that will take place in Sri Lanka on September 21.

The attack should be transparently and independently investigated, and the perpetrators involved should be brought to justice swiftly.

We call on all parties to refrain from violence and observe a peaceful, open and transparent electoral process – one that is free, fair and credible and allows for the full expression of the voters to select democratically the representatives of their choice.
