CORONA epidemic will never end. Government will impose curfew until the GE is held. May be they are trying to fool the people during this CORONA period too.

Congratulations to the National Elections Commission for deciding to hold the General Elections on the 20th of June; the two months breathing time will give citizens sufficient time to get used to maintaining distance to keep COVID-19 Virus at bay; to decide on the best candidate to cast their vote on the ballot paper!

This is high time to hold the General Election to wipe out all the corrupt lot-of-politicians from the Parliament. The Election postponing techniques are the tactics used by the FORMER CORRUPT REGIME.

At this crucial time we all should act together to eradicate this dreadful virus from my motherland and we can think the GE later.
