UNP Parliamentarian Lakshman Kiriella has acknowledged that it’s more suitable to hold elections under the electoral system in comparison to the preferential system. He made this statement addressing a meeting at Pil-hatha in Hasalaka.
Mr. Kiriella said the forthcoming local government elections will be held under the electoral system. There will not be a preferential voting system.
No one should be disappointed. However, candidates will have to engage in house to house canvassing. He said some are of the view that this system is not appropriate but his view is that it is a better system.
