Meeting between Elections Chief and party representatives

A meeting was held today between the Chairman of the Elections Commission and Party representatives. The meeting was conducted at the Elections Commission’s office. Party representatives expressed their views to the media after the discussion.

Parliamentarian Dayasiri Jayasekara pointed out that they raised the issue of conducting Provincial Councils elections soon. He said that during the 50 day Government the Cabinet approved this initiative. If the present Government considers that it has been approved by the Cabinet, Provincial Council elections can be held soon. But he said that the Prime Minister of the present Government had said that another Cabinet paper has to be submitted. This means that there would be a delay in holding the elections under the old system.

Former Minister Basil Rajapaksa said that they discussed a crisis that had surfaced with respect to the Provincial elections. Certain Pradeshiya Sabhas have still been unable to name the members due for their parties. The parties made inquiries as to how the matter should be resolved.
