    “It has been reported that children are being used for various activities related to the upcoming elections in violation of the rights of these children. The NCPA views this matter very seriously,” its Chairperson Marini de Livera said.

     

    The NCPA urges the general public to provide information over its 24 hour ChildLine 1929 if such incidents occur.
