Apr 14, Colombo: Former Minister and Defence spokesman Keheliya Rambukwella has lamented that the results of Kandy District at Sri Lanka's 2010 parliamentary elections are being held up as a result of the bad behavior of some ruling party United People's Freedom Alliance members.
Addressing a media briefing yesterday Rambukwella, a crossover from the main opposition UNP and now contesting under UPFA for the Kandy district said it is regrettable that the overall general election result of the Kandy district cannot be announced.
"We hope that at least in the future, an atmosphere will be created so that one could engage in election activities with discipline and good behaviour," Rambukwella said.
According to reports supporters of UPFA minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage have threatened and chased away voters believed to be supporters of Minister Sarath Amunugama, another crossover from the UNP contesting under the UPFA.
"We expect that at least in the future, discipline, good behavior and patience would be maintained and extreme greed would be controlled in the holding of the upcoming election," Rambukwella said.
