UNP Agrees To LG Electoral Reforms

Sep 13, 2010 5:12:45 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The UNP today (13) said the party was agreeable in principle to the proposed local government election amendments.

UNP Spokesperson and parliamentarian Gayantha Karunathileka told a press conference that the party has agreed to the reforms in principle despite some reservations.

“Even though further clarification is needed, the party in general agrees with government on the changes,” Karunathileka said.

According to him, among the issues the party had were the number of persons to be elected under the proportional representation (PR) system and the demarcation of the local councils.
