Asgiriya prelate warns of turmoil if polls postponed

Dr. Ven. Medagama Dhammananda thera of Asgiriya Chapter has alleged that politicians created problems and issues thereby causing immense pressure on the people.

Instead of re-building shattered lives, politicians either sought to retain power or gain power. The Ven thera said so when dissident SLPP lawmaker Prof. G. L. Peiris on Tuesday (8) met him in Kandy.

The Ven thera also stressed the importance of conducting elections in terms of the Constitution.

Earlier in the day, Prof. Peiris met Most Rev Warakagoda Sri Gnanaratne thera, Mahanayaka of Asgiriya Chapter. Ven. Gnanaratne thera had warned there could be turmoil if attempts were made to postpone scheduled elections.

Prof. Peiris has said that there couldn’t be ambiguity regarding the life of President and Parliament as both were limited to five years.

The former minister said the government should allow the Election Commission to proceed without causing unnecessary hindrance.
