JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake said in Parliament that the Election Commission and its chairman are conspiring with the government to postpone the local government elections.
“The Election Commission has the authority call for elections. There is no need to consult the Attorney General,” he said.
“This is a conspiracy.” The Election Commission can publish the gazette tomorrow. It is clear that the Election Commission is cooperating with the government. We know where Panchihewa came from, that he worked with the president before, and we know how closely he worked with the government. “He is not an independent person,” he said.
