UNF not considering early Parliamentary election

The United National Front (UNF) is not considering early Parliamentary election, Non-Cabinet Minister of Telecommunications and Digital Infrastructure Ajith P. Perera said today.

He said that Parliamentary election will be held only after the due date when the term of the current Parliament ends.

Perera said some Sri Lanka Freedom Party members have claimed that the UNF will back a motion to hold early elections on the basis that there is instability in the country.

However Perera insisted that there was no move to hold an early election.

He said that a Presidential election will be held before the next Parliamentary election.
