Polls chief to meet party leaders tomorrow

National Election Commission Chairman Mahinda Deshapriya is to meet political party leaders tomorrow with regards to the Parliamentary election.

Former United National Party Parliamentarian Dr. Harsha de Silva said that the National Election Commission Chairman will meet the party leaders in batches.

The Parliamentary election was to be held on 25 April but the election has since been postponed as a result of the coronavirus.

There have been reports that the election would likely be held next month.

Dr. Harsha de Silva, who met the Election Commission Chairman today, said that concerns have been raised over moves to hold the election in an environment where the coronavirus is still a threat in the country.

He said that while an election is needed, it should not be priority at this moment. (Colombo Gazette)
