Responding to a media query on the election violence in the run-up to the election Presidential election on January 08th, Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesman for the Secretary-General, said the Secretary‑General's call to the Government to ensure that the elections are peaceful and that they're inclusive, including for minorities is much more important now on the backdrop of the election violence.

The UN Chief last month has called on Sri Lanka's Minister of External Affairs Professor GL Peiris and reaffirmed the UN's continuous support for reconciliation, political dialogue and accountability as the country heads towards the election on 8th January 2015.

During the call, the Secretary-General has also noted the importance of inclusive participation of all Sri Lankan voters, including from minority communities, in the election process without any fear.
