Hold elections early with minimum harassment to the people … Sirisena tells EC


Sri Lanka Freedom Party Leader former President Maithripala Sirisena has observed that the election should be held early with minimum harassment to the people.

He made this observation addressing a news conference last week. During his address to the media, Sirisena said:

“The election should be held early since both political and economic problems will not be resolved without the Parliament. The President cannot resolve these matters alone. The President needs the support of Parliament.

I know that very well as I am a former President who did not have the support of Parliament. Therefore, the General election is necessary to gain political stability to get the country going forward.

Holding polls should be done by obtaining advice from health officials as there is a pandemic situation in the country. There will be more issues if the election is delayed.

According to agreements signed during the pre-presidential election period, the SLFP will continue to support the President and the Government. The SLFP will face the election as an alliance of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna and win the elections.

The Elections Commission is delaying the elections for the safety of the people, but the Opposition is working on a political agenda by capitalizing on this. We are opposed to this.

The SLFP believes that the elections should be held with minimum harassment to the people. There should not be huge rallies. We are planning to give a set of guidelines to the Elections Commission to conduct the elections without harassment to the people.”
