The Elections Commission says it is directing its focus to the debate on the Bond Commission Report and the 34 reports of PRECIFAC only to examine if election laws are being violated.
Chairman of the Elections Commission Mahinda Deshapriya said the Commission has no authority to make decisions on a Parliamentary debate.
Speaking at a media briefing held at the Commission in Colombo last evening, Mahinda Deshapriya said he prefers the debate being held prior to the 8th of February.
Deshapriya said the Elections Commission is indifferent over the debate.
He added the only relevance the Elections Commission has is that the debate is being held on days which are expected to be peaceful and non-violent.
