Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - FRONT PAGE - BY KELUM BAN­DARA

Elec­tion Com­mis­sion Chair­man Mahinda De­shapriya said yes­ter­day Pres­i­dent Maithri­pala Sirisena had never held any dis­cus­sions with him about a snap gen­eral elec­tion.

He told Daily Mir­ror that he met the Pres­i­dent a long time ago, and it was to con­duct elec­tions to the pro­vin­cial coun­cils.

“I have never spo­ken to the Pres­i­dent on any other mat­ter,” he said.

The Pres­i­dent has al­ready said would take steps to con­duct PC elec­tions as early as pos­si­ble.
