Mr. President, Sack all these Governors immediately for Messing up the provincial administration like bulls in a China shop in the absence of the Provincial Councils. How can they behave like this, When you as the President has set an example not only by remaining impartial but also by handing over even the Chairmanship of the Party to your Ex-General secretary?  These Governors were appointed by you as your representatives in the Provinces. I am sure the Secretaries of the PCC can do a better job than these parasitic so-called Governors. Then why spend millions out of public funds to maintain these jobless men for nothing.

The whole nation must condemn the ridiculous behavior of these men for bringing these positions to public disrepute.

Seven Provincial Governors supporting two main candidates

Seven Provincial Governors were directly or indirectly supporting the two main candidates in the November 16 Presidential Election, Acting Executive Director of the Campaign for Free and Fair Elections (CaFFE) Manas Makeen said yesterday. He said that four Governors that support Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa were doing so openly while three Governors supported New Democratic Front (NDF) Presidential candidate, Sajith Premadasa indirectly. He said the Governors that supported Premadasa had done so indirectly. But CaFFE and civil society organisations that work with it were keeping an eye on their activities, Makeen said. Since Provincial Councils were not functioning, Governors had access to vast resources. Using those resources and their positions to support candidates was illegal and unethical.
