An event organised by former President Maithripala Sirisena, who is contesting the general elections, to distribute scholarships among 360 students selected for universities from the Polonnaruwa District, has been suspended by the Elections Commission yesterday.  

Speaking at the event at the Pulathisi Buddhi Mandapa, Mr Sirisena said, as a former President of the country, he would never violate any election law or regulation.   


“I express my regret for the inconvenience caused to the children who came from far as there will be no distribution of scholarships today. However, the scholarships will be distributed on a date after the election in August,” he said.   
The event was organised by the Maithripala Sirisena Lakdaru Diriya Foundation to distribute scholarships and certificates to students selected to universities for the academic year of 2019.
