It is very important to conduct local government elections – American Ambassador

Source
American Ambassador to Sri Lanka Julie Chung says that it is very important to hold the local government elections to represent the people through qualified representatives. She said this while addressing the 2023 National Legal Conference held on the theme ‘Navigating through Crisis and Role of Law’ organized by the Sri Lanka Bar Association. Here are the views expressed by President’s Counsel Saliya Peiris, President of the Sri Lanka Bar Association, Chief Justice Jayantha Jayasuriya and American Ambassador to Sri Lanka Julie Chung. President’s Counsel Saliya Peiris said, “The independence of the judiciary is an important milestone in the history of Sri Lanka. An independent judiciary is necessary to deliver justice to a country and its people. India’s “The Hindu” newspaper defined the Sri Lanka Bar Association as the voice of justice in the face of crisis. The Sri Lanka Bar Association has intervened at every moment when it was necessary to protect the right of the people to express their opinions and the right of assembly.” Chief Justice Jayantha Jayasuriya said, “In the face of the Corona disaster and the economic crisis, we faced many changes. Such changes will help us break all future barriers and bring the country back to its normal state. Independence, impartiality and people’s trust are the main factors to protect the judiciary.” Julie Chung, US Ambassador to Sri Lanka said, “You are all officers who defend the law. Since the beginning of the relationship between our two countries, the importance of an independent judiciary based on democratic principles has been demonstrated. The United States stands up for the rights of the Sri Lankan people. Free elections in Sri Lanka’s proud history are an example of that. Elections give the people the ability to represent the government directly through qualified legal representation in cooperation with civil organizations. That is why it is very important to hold the local government elections as we had discussed earlier.” 0 Comments
