It is the height of absurdity of the President to claim that the Local Government election has not been officially declared after all legal steps have been taken and nominations filed for the March 9 elections, TNA MP M. A. Sumanthiran PC said today.

He told a news conference in Jaffna that the Treasury has released upto Rs. 100 million for the initial expenses with the view to conduct the election.

He also said that the UNP has filed nominations for various Local authorities and engaged in widespread campaign.

"The Finance Minister and the UNP leader, in his capacity as the President stated in Parliament that no election was officially declared in the country.

"This is the height of absurdity," he said.

The President's counsel and Jaffna district TNA parliamentarian said that the periodic elections are important elements for establishing democratic governance and added that the Local Government election which was earlier postponed by the government by an year, is now due before March 19 this year.(Ajith Siriwardana)

    Mr. Sumanthiran, Do you honestly believe that is serious about implementing the 13th amendment?

    Any Sinhala Government won't do. But will happen in time.

    TNA is useless for our country Saturday, 25 February 2023 08:02 PM

    TNA has never done anything useful for our nation. They are like the Muslim parties, or minor religious parties. They were all for separate Tamil homeland. They are for all of 13A. All of those things, including the 13A laws are past their use by date, and should be revoked and forgotten about.

    Sumanthiran is ignorant about simple facts.What RW said was RW's observations and election commission is responsible for conducting elections.

    What this shows is all of us Srilankans should be united. Be it Sinhalese, Tamil, Muslim, Burger, Malay or any other community when we are fighting these politicians! Let us unit in this fight to oust the Ranil Rajapaksa’s government.

    IMF will drag the fund it needs restructure of the leaders who made the country bankrupt and RW is not charging them but taxing public. It is a capital mistake of RW to theorize IMF fund as he it will received on January as he said before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts. He is somersault decisions by RW
