Chance for IDPs to vote

All Internally Displaced Persons in welfare villages in the North as well as those living with friends or relations will be provided with the opportunity of exercising their vote at the presidential election. Vavuniya District Secretary P. S. M. Charles told the Daily News recently.

The Assistant Commissioner of Elections in the district will provide transport to the IDPs to exercise their vote.

There is much enthusiasm among the people to exercise their franchise during this election as there is no pressures from the terrorists, a senior government official in the North said.

All facilities needed to exercise the vote of all citizens in the district are provided. A polling station close to the IDP welfare village zone will be established while the normal polling stations for resettled IDPs in their respective villages will be provided. A cluster polling station at the Vavuniya town will be set up for people living with friends or relations, Charles said.

People in the welfare villages are moving about freely. The rehabilitation process will be expedited when a further shipment of roofing sheets from India is received soon. Sources in the north said people of the north were not prepared to support most parliamentarians in the north who did not take action when the displaced people and those affected by terrorism were suffering but attempted to make political mileage out of the people’s suffering.

On the other hand President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s special task force for the north had taken steps to provide all the necessities including, food, sanitation and health facilities to them.
