Former Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa claimed that the country must opt for a General Election only after the present Government is able to resolve the ongoing crises.

He stated that though most of those in the current Opposition, have spoken about a snap General Election as a way of overcoming the country’s present economic and political upheaval, but his view is that it would not be apt to hold polls at this juncture.

The former PM made these remarks during a recent discussion he had held with a group of SLPP MPs.

He stressed that due to the severity of the crisis situation here it would be impossible to coax the public to polling booths at this time.

Rajapaksa added that the present Government should do its utmost to resolve the burning issues of the masses and get the country back on track.

He also expressed his party’s support towards the Government to rid the nation of its current economic and political mess.
