Presidential election prior to 2019 end!

Prior to the end of 2019 there will be a presidential election and prior to that the Provincial Council elections would be held, said the Leader of the House, State Enterprise and Kandy Development Minister Lakshman Kiriella, adding that the United national Party (UNP) is ready to face these elections.

The minister said this during the ‘Haritha Bhoomi’ ceremony to hand over land rights to the estate labourers where 450 estate families were handed over their land rights at the Kandy Pupuressa Levelan estate. 

He further noted that the UNP does not run away in fear of facing elections, adding that the Prime Minister had appointed a committee under his leadership in order to find a solution to the delimitation system, which was defeated as all parties voted against it.

He said all should respect the views of the parliament members and that the electoral system that is passed should have the approval of all.
