Sports and Youth Affairs Minister Namal Rajapaksa has said that the ruling party has no interest in extending the term of the President or the government without holding elections.
“No, there is no such thing. We will hold elections on time. In the political history of President Mahinda Rajapaksa and President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, we never had a hope of postponing or extending elections. We as a government will work to do justice to the people for the next three years ”
Q. Does that mean you do not want to extend the period further?
“No need at all!”
Minister Namal Rajapaksa stated this while expressing his views to the media in Gampaha yesterday (22).
