The Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) said today it had serious doubts whether the Elections Commission’s member Professor Ratnajeevan Hoole arrived in the election office along with his daughter, who was subjected to quarantine measures, as part of his modus operandi to get the Parliamentary Elections postponed.

SLPP Chairman Professor G.L. Peiris told a news conference that the staff members of the election office protested the arrival of his daughter.

He said Prof. Hoole’s daughter had been referred to quarantine measures upon her arrival from abroad.

He said her presence would have exposed the workers of the election office to the threat of COVID-19.

Prof. Peiris said self-isolation of election employees would burden the Commission discharging duties in view of the General Elections.

“We wonder whether this is part of his tactics to get the elections postponed,” he said.

He said Prof. Hoole had gone to court seeking a postponement of the elections as desired by some parties in the Opposition. (Kelum Bandara)

    GL gone bonkers as usual. Unbecoming for someone educated, I guess greed drove him where he is at today. Very sad, GL has done immense disservice to our country by helping the crooks steal while also faking left I era for himself and family.

    On the contrary if Hoole’s daughter flouted quarantine rules then she should be arrested and not above the law. And Hope should be up for disciplinary review and asked to step aside. He’s being protected just because he’s Tamil and hence feels untouchable

    Prof. G L Peiris is talking rubbish. Unlike himself, Prof. Hoole is a highly respected academic who never sold his self respect for money or power. Prof. Hoole has said very clearly that his daughter underwent the mandatory 14 day quarantine after her arrival from the UK and obtained a Quarantine Certificate from the relevant authorities. so what's the problem?

    GL is now only the mouthpiece of his master. A sad end for this man now only to spread the lies of the Rajapaksas. By the way: Prof. Hole is the only member in the EC who has the backbone to contradict the Rajapaksa clan and insist on compliance with the constitution.

    Anything to say about Hoole's weird acts? (The subject matter and the topic here)

    Reply to Kingsley Wijesinghe. The problem my friend, is that GL is a Loser and he's got to say something on behalf of the royal family so he can be in the spotlight.
