The People’s Action for Free & Fair Elections (PAFFREL) says it is possible that Provincial Councils would turn into a totalitarian system if they continue to be governed by a single person, and not by public representatives.
He stated this responding to a query made by Ada Derana.
The Executive Director of PAFFREL Rohana Hettiarachchi said the government must pay its attention to holding the Provincial Council elections.
The five-year official tenure of Uva Provincial Council expired from midnight yesterday (09) and powers of all Provincial Councils are now assigned under the Governors.
