The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) has so far received over 10,000 applications from party members to contest in the upcoming Local Government Election. This is the highest number of applications ever received in history for a local Government Election, Health Minister Maithripala Sirisena said.
Addressing the media after a ceremony held at his office yesterday, Minister Sirisena said that the SLFP expects around 100,000 applications by January 15, the day of closing date for applications. The party received over 7,000 applications in two days.
This shows the interest the party members have in contesting the Local Government Election and the confidence they have in the stable future of the Government.
