Novel programme for an independent polls campaign

Jan 6, 2011 11:25:11 AM - itnnews.lk

The Government has a novel programme on behalf of an independent election campaign. Cabinet Spokesman Keheliya Rambukwella said that with the dissolution of local bodies, these institutions will for the first time be entrusted to Commissioners during the election period.

The Minister said as an initial measure of establishing democracy, all local bodies will come under Commissioners. Former heads of local bodies will be contesting the elections only as candidates without any powers. This is a special feature of establishing democracy.
