Public Admin withdraws controversial circular related to elections


The Secretary to the Ministry of Public Administration Neil Bandara Hapuhinna has withdrawn a circular he issued earlier in the day directing District Secretaries to suspend accepting deposits from candidates due to contest the Local Government elections.

The withdrawal came after several opposition parties raised concern about the circular.

The Elections Commission also reacted saying that the Secretary of Public Administration was not empowered to issue directives after an election has been called for.

The Public Administration Circular said that the circular of suspension of accepting deposits was being issued following a Cabinet decision.
