Elections Commission Chairman Mahinda Deshapriya said yesterday that Speaker Karu Jayasuriya agreed to work out a roadmap for the conducting of the provincial councils elections before December this year.
Mr. Deshapriya told the Daily Mirror yesterday that the Speaker had convened a meeting with him and the members of the Delimitation Commission assigned to demarcate the boundaries of new electorates in keeping with the electoral system to be introduced for the elections to the provincial councils.
He said the Parliament had the power for legislative work.
“It is the supremacy of Parliament. The Speaker agreed to give us a roadmap outlining how the elections could be conducted before December, this year,” he said. (Kelum Bandara)

Waste of money Sir, keep quiet, now the country is sinking, cost of living has gone to sky levels, US$ had shot up as ever to 162, people are staving in the remote areas. People will not be benefited by any elections only the Politicians will prosper.

Ofcourse Doctor I agree with you, No need of a election hereafter, believe me I am not a My3 man neither RW's man - but until these two leaders fulfill their promises, don't hold any elections.
Mrs. Dorathy Senanayake Saturday, 30 June 2018 10:07 PM
Whatever you say, I feel after holding elections - SLPP will come to power and Gota will take over as President, then the country will prosper.

You are a honest person Mr. Deshapiriya but our Politicians are the worst crooks their only motive is to earn much as possible illegally and to settle down in another country. So, I feel better not to waste your precious energy.

Hereafter, either MS or RW will not hold an election as they know pretty well both will lose to the bottom.

Fly a kite putha, very soon the whole nation is going to be in the streets and MY3 and RW will have to pack their bags and go home and hide. Gota will take over our country soon like Hitler.

Jothy, kindly tell Prez. and the PM to fly a kite in the Galle Face Green for the last time and go to their own home safely.

Every election the economy comes to a standstill for a week atleast. But who cares. Politicians are concerned ONLY about their wellbeing .
