New plan to demarcate boundaries in Sri Lanka’s electoral process

14 September 2017 - 120   - 0


LIRNEasia, a Sri Lankan thinktank, has proposed a format pertaining to demarcating boundaries of the electoral process which is laudable, said the Minister of National Co-existence Dialogue and Official Languages Mano Ganesan at a presentation of a Open Government portal held at the Sri Lanka Institute of Development Administration in Colombo on Thursday.  
He said the process was important until delimitaion was conducted in an intelligent, profesional and in a reasonable fair manner that will be acceptable by minorparties. "I say minor parties and not minority parties as all other parties other than the United National Party (UNP) and the Sri Lanka Freedom party (SLFP) fall into minor parties category." 
He said the Provincial Council Elections and the Parliamentary Elections will become tough until delimitation was carried out in a just and in a fair manner. "When I met a Member of Parliament at a function recently he said he was dismayed the way how delimitation was being carried out. This was the mindset of some MP's."
Chairman of the DeLimitation Commision  Pavalingam Kanagaratnam and Prof. Rohan Samarajiva, Chairman of LIRNEasia and the Charge de Affaires of the Canadian High Commission of Sri Lanka, Jenifar Mart also spoke. (Jayampathy)
