General Secretary of the United National Party: Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam says, the results of the Elpitiya Pradeshiya Sabha elections do not depict the opinion of the entire country.
This is the opinion of the voters of an extremely small area.
He noted, even at elections when the UNP secured landslide victories, the party received a low percentage of votes from the Bentara-Elpitiya electorate. He points out, the people’s power – rallied round the UNP – was evident at the rally held at Galle Face Green, recently.
JVP Propaganda Secretary: Parliamentarian Vijitha Herath says, the results of the Presidential Election cannot be measured upon the results of the Elpitiya Pradeshiya Sabha election. He points out, it is incompatible to mirror the results of a regional election with the results of a national election.
