Time to change this election system: Karu

(April 10, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe says that he is satiesfied with the counting process of the election. He expressed this view at a media brieifng held at the opposition leader's office this morning.

Meanwhile journalists questioned about the resignation letter of Ranjith Madduma Bandara who was subjected to a disciplinary inquiry following a problematic situation that arose with the handling over of nominations.

“We can only forward the resignation letter if he crosses over. Currently there is a disciplinary inquiry against him,” said Opposition Leader.

Several senior members of the UNF also expressed views at the briefing.

“The time has come to change this election system because of this system unnecessary problems have arisen even within parties. Both time and money has been wasted. Not just that there are clashes. We can stop all this by changing the election system. We need to move towards the 17th amendment to the constitution, and to change this election system,” said Karu Jayasooriya.

“People of the South have silently expressed their displeasure over the anti democratic governance of the country. More than those in the South, those in the North, the Tamil community have also expressed their displeasure. Only 27% have voted in the Jaffna district while in Vavuniya only 40% have voted. The government that promised to instill peace, has already lost the trust of the Tamil community,” said Mangala Samaraweera.
