President Maithripala Sirisena will take prompt action to implement the recommendations made by the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into Central Bank bond issue when the report is submitted to him by next week, Minister Nimal Siripala De Silva said.

He said the President would take legal action before the February 10 elections against anyone found responsible for the bond scam.

“I don’t see any reason why President Sirisena should delay to act on the recommendations because the entire country is awaiting for the result," the minister said.

He said the SLFP handed over nominations to 93 local government bodies.

The National Congress that supports the UPFA handed over nominations to three local government bodies and the CWC and an Independent Group one each.

At the second stage, the SLFP handed over 96 nominations, the UPFA 146 and the CWC 6. Accordingly, the SLFP contests for 123 local government bodies, the UPFA 207 and supporting parties and groups 11 out of a total of 341 local government bodies in the fray.

Two SLFP nominations have been rejected by returning officers because of lapses on the part of the organizers.

The Minister said that the SLFP considers the LG election as the stepping stone to win single handedly, the forthcoming PC polls, parliamentary polls in 2020 and presidential poll in 2021.

“The SLFP has given clear instructions to its candidates to follow the election law to the letter and not to use state assets for their poll campaign. We are committed to ensure a free and fair election with no violence and corruption," he said.

Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara said this election was historic because its election campaign is free of violence in many parts of the country. “You may remember that the last LG election held in October, 2011 was marred by widespread violence that ended with the murder of former Parliamentarian Bharatha Lakshman. We don’t see that kind of violence this time and it is a victory for the government,” he said (Sandun A Jayasekera)

    Can president give punishments? It’s duty of Judiciary or parliament.

    Act he should. But people would not want a comedy act or double acting. H.E should be a mix of villain hero. All the best.

    What about well know amounts you got and things you did when you were Minister of Health? No action against those?

    weera Saturday, 23 December 2017 12:42 PM

    Nothing will happen. What can the public do?

    Unchikun Saturday, 23 December 2017 02:49 PM

    We have the piece of paper and pencil. Use it intelligently.

    Editor Saturday, 23 December 2017 04:48 PM

    Politicians won't be caught in any robberies or scams. All are together in the same company. The masses are stupid

    Martin Milton Saturday, 23 December 2017 04:53 PM

    Yeah , right! The person who is talking is another hopeless case, as he also has absolutely no feeling for the people of Sri Lanka OR Sri Lanka for that matter. It will be the day when HE The President takes action to Jail the rogues who have been found responsible for this massive financial scam. The entire world awaits this outcome. He had better make it look good and DO IT as soon as possible without suddenly forgetting what he promised to do, as this is his usual modus operandi !! MM
