COLOMBO (News 1st): Minister of Highways and Road Development S. B. Dissanayake said that a request is being made to the President to hold elections, instead of dissolving the government: “We are requesting the president to let go of the idea of dissolving the government”
He said that “many MPs” who were attempting to join the ruling party “ran away” when parliament was dissolved.
“Elections should be held during the latter part of 2020. If the president decided to cancel the gazette issued regarding the upcoming elections after the 7th, there could be complications. However, the president has the power to cancel the Gazette even a moment before the decision is announced. Cancel the Gazette and cancel the election.” he said.
