Mandate no more. New mandate required: Former Election Commission Chairman

The mandate given by the people in the last presidential election and the general election has now been cancelled and therefore, a general election should be held as soon as possible to pave the way for a new mandate, said former Chairman of the Election Commission Mahinda Deshapriya.

The ex Commission Chief added that should elections be held for the establishment of democracy, there are institutions to bear the costs for it and countries like Afghanistan and Bangladesh can be pointed out as examples for such scenarios.

The holding of an election amidst this economic crisis may not be much of a problem in the event that the government officials have already declared that they are ready to engage in election duties without receiving any allowance, he added.
