Polls chief designs poster Featured

Politicians’ habit of including their names in plaques to take credit for projects carried out with public money disrupts decision-making by voters, says election commission chairman Mahinda Deshapriya.

The polls chief says he has a method to prevent such instances – the commission has designed a poster that says ‘the project has been built with taxpayers’ money.’

The poster will be pasted at the places required, he says, adding that nothing else could be done.

Deshapriya adds that the Government Press promised to print the poster in expired paper to save money.
