The Political Parties are un-interested in the registration of currently being carried. Although the parties are entitled to nominate their agents for each GS division, Only ITAK had submitted its list of agents, other parties had failed to do so, reported the Election Department yesterday.
Earlier the Department had informed the Secretaries of all parties to nominate their agents for each GS Divisions. Only the ITAK had responded to this letter but they too had only sent in lists for 10 electoral districts of Jaffna.
In the last election registered parties of ACTC, EPDP, UNP, SLFP UPFA contested in the North.
It is also notable the number of seats allocated for Jaffna District was reduced from 7 to 6 due fall in the number of registered voters.
