President, the biggest obstacle for free & fair election – Comrade Anura Dissanayaka

“Today the President has made opening school buildings one of his election projects. As such, the president uses the powers given to him illicitly. As the first citizen of the country he is bound to be an example regarding the supremacy of the law. He is the one who should take the lead in holding a free and fair election. But what happens is that the President blatantly violates election laws. If the President acts in that manner  what can we say about Sasheendra Rajapaksa or Minister Vijayamuni Zoysa’s son? The biggest obstacle to hold a free and fair election has become the President,” said the Leader of the JVP Comrade Anura Dissanayaka speaking at a media conference held at the JVP head office at Pelawatta today (12th).
