US congratulates SL for holding peaceful election amid COVID-19 pandemic

The United States extends its wishes to Sri Lanka for the successful conclusion of the General Election 2020.

The Embassy of the US in Colombo in a statement said, “On August 5, the people of Sri Lanka exercised a fundamental democratic right and went to the polls to elect their next parliament.  The United States congratulates Sri Lanka on conducting the elections in a peaceful and orderly manner despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.  As the new parliament convenes, we hope the government will renew its commitments to building an inclusive economic recovery, upholding human rights and the rule of law, and protecting the country’s sovereignty.  We look forward to partnering with the government and new parliament.
