All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama

The All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama (ACJU) yesterday urged the women folk who wear the face cover to cooperate with the officers by opening the face cover (niqab) to confirm their identity when entering the polling booth.

ACJU made the appeal in the following statement:

“The Presidential election would be held on the November 16, 2019. As citizens of Sri Lanka it is our right to caste our vote to our preferred candidate.

We therefore urge all citizens who has obtained their voting right to utilize it by casting their votes without wasting.

All voters are requested to caste their voting to their preferred candidate as early as possible within the stipulated timing without delaying.

Further provide the fullest support for the officers who are appointed on Election Duty and carry documents to produce which will prove your identity like the National indemnification card.

It is mandatory requirement to show your identity when entering to the polling, booth. Hence we kindly request the women folk who wear the face cover to cooperate with the officers by opening the face cover to confirm your identity when entering the polling booth, and also to be accompanied by another when going to the polling booth. Further it is preferred to travel in vehicles as much as possible and return home without delay. This would perhaps help avoid any unhappy occurrences.”
