LG polls - UPFA leaders to discuss nominations

The leaders of the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) will meet on Tuesday to discuss the nominations for the forthcoming local government elections scheduled to be held in October this year. The UPFA’s main party leaders will decide on their future action plan and the nominations for the forthcoming local government elections at the meeting, a senior politician of the UPFA said.

The term of office of 23 local bodies including 17 Municipal Councils was extended by President Mahinda Rajapaksa due to the world cup cricket tournament held in April this year.

Elections Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya said last week that nominations for the remaining local bodies will be accepted from August 18-25 by the Elections Department.

Meanwhile, the Elections Commissioner hopes to hold elections in Pudukudirippu and the Weralabada Pattu Pradeshiya Sabhas in the Mullaitivu district and his officials have called for a report in this regard. The clearing of landmines has not been completed yet in those areas and hence elections were not held.

The main opposition parties, the UNP and JVP are also due to meet next week to plan their strategies for the forthcoming local government elections.

Among the 23 local bodies which will go to the polls are 17 Municipal Councils including Colombo, Sri Jayawardenapura, Negombo, Moratuwa, Gampaha, Galle, Matara, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Kurunegala, Badulla and Anuradhapura.
