Persons scared to face polls utilize the COVID-19 as scapegoat to postpone elections … Peiris


Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Chairman Professor G.L. Peiris has charged that persons scared to face the elections were attempting to use the COVID-19 situation as a scapegoat to get the General Elections postponed.

He made the charge while speaking at the weekly SLPP news briefing. Peiris said:

“ An appropriate plan is in place to mitigate the COVID-19 situation and hold polls. The health authorities are taking all necessary action accordingly. It is not practical to prevent risks 100 per cent and therefore, the people should not take the situation lightly. All steps and guidelines necessary must be taken, but at the same time there is no need to create a panic situation.

Some people who know that they are not winning the General Elections, use the COVID-19 situation as a scapegoat to get the elections postponed. Resorting to get the polls postponed is the simplest theory they have. If polls are held, they will lose without a doubt. In order to avoid defeat, they need to avoid polls. That’s why they have been postponing elections. We already know the results. The SLPP won the Local Government election with a landslide victory.

The government’s priority is to protect the people and their health. Health authorities say action has been taken to mitigate the COVID-19 situation and the government follows their instructions.“
