    You act even now like a dictator. Recall the parliament and postpone the election at least for 6 month.

    Yes, try to gain power over the dead bodies of innocent people. Is the election need of the hour? Even if the election is held on time what difference will it make to the lives of the 99.99% of Sri Lankans? NOTHING!!!

    He is dreaming of 2/3 wether corona or not. He will lock down. Close, put guard,alert the 3 forces to stop all departments from functioning on the dreadful and frightening corona as a excuse. But the election commission to function.

    Postponing the elections means a country without the parliament. Any country that proves its economical, financial, health and safety measures implementation accurately and timely without the political interference means NO REASON to have a parliament in the first place. Saving large sums of revenue that can be allocated for other things like research of healthcare. Further, we won't have dumb ass idiotic ministers like the moron of Wildlife and Environmental minister who does nothing to safeguard the environment or wildlife.

    He is only interested in holding elections and getting 2/3 majority so that his family rule can go on forever. He is least bothered on the current world situation.
