UNP: Govt. Misled Parliament

Jan 9, 2011 9:18:55 PM - thesundayleader.lk

The UNP yesterday (9) alleged that the government has misled parliament by saying the local government elections would be held before March 31.

Opposition UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe addressing a public rally in Nugegoda said that Local Government and Provincial Councils Minister A. L. M. Athaullah had last week misled parliament by giving a false assurance that the local government elections would be held before March 31.

Wickremesinghe said the government after saying local government elections would be held before March 31 has now announced the postponement of elections to thee Municipal Councils.

The UNP and the JVP last week raised objections to the holding of local government elections on a staggered basis.
