I will resign if PC polls are not held before Presidential poll – Deshapriya
Chairman of the Elections Commission Mahinda Deshapriya says he will resign from his post, if the Provincial Council Election is not held before the 10th of November 2019.
He said, “as the Elections Commission we have not made a statement neither has any official of the Commission. We cannot do anything if a decision is reached to hold the Presidential Election earlier. But, if the Presidential Election does not take place between the 9th of November and the 9th of December, and if the Provincial Council Election is not held before the 10th of November, then I will resign as the Chairman of the Elections Commission as a mark of protest. Mahinda Deshapriya is also a citizen and he is also heartbroken by this election delay. If I resign then someone else will be employed that’s not something difficult.”
Of course, mate Deshapriya,
There are many others who can deliver the role of Head of the elections Commission with integrity, value, impartiality and user friendliness.
I think your shelf life lapsed and it is time you are replaced by a new product.
People who threaten to do things if something else is not done by someone else, are cowards.
If you are not happy in your job, go home, my dear friend.
Don’t just stay in your job and threaten resignation.
Resignation is not a sword; it is a coward’s knife.
We all know you were present in Araligaha Madhiraya on the night of 08 Jan 2015 when the people of Sri Lanka had overwhelmingly decided to de-throne the former King.
What were you doing there?
Mr Deshapriya, best thing to do now is to go home; try to retire; don’t resign. You will need the pension.
