The UNP is to propose amendments to the bill presented to parliament by the government last week on local government electoral reforms.
UNP MP and Spokesperson Gayantha Karunathileka told the media that the party will submit amendments to the Local Government Bill.
He says the UNP would propose a multiple seat system for the local governments.
Several opposition political parties have opposed the government’s amendments to the local government electoral system.
The TNA has already said it would challenge the bill in court claiming it creates a two party electoral system.
