The government continues its attempts to put off the local government polls due to the deep public disapproval of it, said opposition leader Sajith Premadasa.
It had so far made 22 crafty attempts, the latest being to block the funding for the election, he told parliament today (07).
Elections need stability
During a speech to the House, president Ranil Wickremesinghe said elections would take place once the country regains stability.
He invited the opposition to join the programme to stabilize the economy.
While accepting people’s right to freedom of expression, the president again warned of strong measures against any attempt at sabotage.
