Time running out

Let the members of Parliament be urged to sink their political differences, and unite for the sake of the people who are in depths of despair lest both the economy and democracy should perish. Today, we have quoted Election Commission Chairman Nimal Punchihewa as saying that the time is not opportune for a general election, and the lawmakers should set up an interim administration to resolve the economic crisis. The government and the Opposition should take the EC Chief’s opinion on board and get their priorities right. Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena has requested President Rajapaksa to summon Parliament urgently and his call must be heeded. Time is fast running out.
