In recent days, the opposition has continuously accused that the government is working to postpone the elections by presenting various opinions.
The opposition emphasizes that the local government election to be held should be conducted and the public opinion should be checked as there is currently a distorted public opinion.
The Chairman of Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna Prof. G.L. Peris and Dallas Alahapperuma, who acted as representatives of the government, held a special discussion yesterday (12) against the postponement of these elections in Colombo with the participation of opposition party representatives.
Accordingly, the party representatives representing the opposition participated and it was agreed that the government’s attempt to postpone the elections should be defeated at the first moment.
After that discussion, the representatives of the opposition made a comment to the media about the agreement.
