Leader of the ‘Pivithuru Hela Urumaya’ (PHU), MP Udaya Gammanpila says that there will be no country left if they stay in silence till the presidential election of 2019.
The Parliamentarian stated this upon attending a party event at the Moratuwella Buddhist Center yesterday (10).
Up until now, the Government dictated dates for elections; they dictated dates for the Local Government elections for two long years, Gammanpila said.
The end has come for the Government’s dictating of election dates, he added. Now we will give the Government dates instead.
Gammanpila also proceeded to state that if the Government fails to conduct Local Government polls in October, they and the public would take to the streets and wrest the election from the Government by force if need be.
He then warned the Government to prepare for a public uprising should they fail to conduct elections.
