Govt. must heed holding PC elections – PAFFREL


It is possible that Provincial Councils would turn into a totalitarian system if they continue to be governed by the single person, not public representatives, People’s Action for Free & Fair Elections (PAFFREL) says.

The Executive Director of PAFFREL Rohana Hettiarachchi said the government must pay its attention to holding the Provincial Council elections.

The five-year official tenure of Uva Provincial Council expired from midnight yesterday (09) and powers of all Provincial Councils are now assigned under the Governors.
