President Maithripala Sirisena stated that extending the term of office of the local government bodies, which ended their term of office, would snatch away the people’s right to vote.

He stated this while speaking during the summit of the SLFP held in Polonnaruwa today.

He further stated that he can issue a gazette notification to extend the term of office of the relevant local government bodies, however, doing so would deprive the right of the voters in the country.
