A decision on the date for the General Election would be made at the Election Commission’s next meeting scheduled for Monday (8), its Chairman Mahinda Deshapriya said.

Speaking at a news briefing, he said Health Services Director General Dr. Anil Jasinghe has handed over a set of guidelines to the Commission to be followed when conducting the polls.

“After studying this, we will meet next Monday to decide on the election date. The Commission has neither the desire to postpone elections nor to get the blame for spreading the virus,” he said.

    How ever bad the people who constitute it, a democratic country needs a parliament. So please get the election done with at the earliest possible date. If not the country is courting trouble.
