Elections should be held on time, states MP Lakshman Kiriella


The Government is postponing the elections day by day as it is well aware of the results, said Chief Opposition Whip, Samagi Jana Balawegaya MP Lakshman Kiriella.

“Conducting elections on time is an outstanding feature of a democratic country and therefore the time is right for the Government to conduct any of the elections,” he added.

MP Kiriella was confident that the Government would be defeated at the election.

“If the election was not held, there will be a situation where the public will come to the roads demanding an election without further delay,” he said.

“The failure of the Government to address the teachers’ and farmers’ issues indicates its incapability,” Kiriella further added.
