Prof. G.L Peiris, Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs said while speaking at the Annual Meeting of Business of Chambers in Colombo that the government was considering postponement of the forthcoming provincial council (PC) elections.

However, if the elections are postponed it would be done according to the constitutions, and will be only for a short period, the minister added.

If the elections are to be held in the present situation troops will have to be withdrawn from the Operational areas. Sacrifices made by the security forces' will become meaningless, he said further.
