Sri Lanka: street violence causes concern of the UN chief

Arguments about the presidential elections lead to street violence

In brief: Sri Lanka's election violence causes disapproval of the world society.

Though the presidential election in Sri Lanka is going to take place only on January 26, the tension among people is already growing. Arguments about the candidates lead to violence and violence leads to victims. Approximately four people have been killed and number of people has been wounded in the street fights in the previous weeks.

Such actions couldn’t remain unnoticed to world society. The chief of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon voiced his concern about the street violence and addressed himself to representatives of the Sri Lanka parties and to people supporting them, asking to avoid violence and provocative actions. Ban Ki-moon also noted that the election, which is led according to rules and laws, is the key to peace and stability in the country.
