‘Gentleman politics, need of the hour’

Gentleman politics is the need of the hour in the country, Speaker Karu Jayasuriya said.

Speaking at an event in Galle on Saturday, Jayasuriya said the time has come for the country to change for the better.

“I met the Elections Commission members recently. They pointed out certain shortcomings in the election process. If we can make the necessary amendments to the laws to rectify them, we can expect a better election system in the country. The amendment will be presented to Parliament for approval in the future,” he said.

The Speaker observed that the recently concluded Presidential Election had been very peaceful unlike those elections where violence was rampant. He said the strengthening of the National Election Commission and the implementation of new laws helped to ensure a peaceful atmosphere during the elections.
