Chairman of the Elections Commission, Mahinda Deshapriya says the possibility of holding a Provincial Council election before the Presidential election is quite narrow.

Mahinda Deshapriya was speaking at an awareness program held in Kurunegala. He further noted that the Presidential election should compulsorily be held in between the 15th of November and 7th of December. The Chairman said that but hopes on holding the Provincial Council election before the Presidential election has not been dropped. He added that the decision on holding the Provincial Council election should be given at least within 10 days and otherwise it will be impractical. He urged the political parties to pass an Act in Parliament to hold the Provincial Council election even after the Presidential election. Mahinda Deshapriya said that the Elections Commission does not enjoy the authority to clarify the messy situation on the Provincial Council election rather the judiciary or the Parliament should decide.   END
