EU is concerned of pre election violence


The EU Heads of Mission based in Sri Lanka are deeply concerned by the pre-electoral violence in Sri Lanka which has already caused two deaths and numerous injured.
A statement by the EU office in Colombo said that the EU believes a peaceful environment is an essential pre-requisite for free and fair elections.
The EU Heads of Mission call on all Parties in Sri Lanka to support a peaceful environment where the people of Sri Lanka can chose their political leadership in a free, fair and unbiased elections, the statement said.

Incidents of pre-poll violence had been reported in a few places while the vehicle of UNP MP Sajith Premadasa had also come under attack recently. A grenade attack was also carried out on the vehicle of TNA MP S. Sridharan this week but it was not clear if the attack was polls related.
