External Affairs Minister Prof G L Peiris claimed that the Government will get a definite massive victory at the upcoming Local Government elections, despite the charges made by the Opposition regarding the Local Government elections being held under the previous system.
The Minister further said that a considerable period of time is needed to initiate some essential measures such as laying a new foundation to hold elections under the new system, setting up of new electorate boundaries and training the officials and these cannot be accomplished within a short period of six weeks.
Minister Peiris made these remarks addressing the Tangalle Electorate Organization (Asana Bala Mandala) meeting of SLFP held in the Tangalle Urban Council premises. Namal Rajapaksa MP, Minister Mahinda Amaraweera, J C Ranga MP also attended the meeting.
