Acceptance of nominations of Local Government Election reaches its final phase

Jan 22, 2011 3:53:32 AM - itnnews.lk

Preparing the lists of nominations by all political parties for the forthcoming Local Government Elections has entered its final phase.

Acceptance of deposits and nominations of independent groups commenced at district level from Thursday. Several small parties and independent groups have handed over their nominations during the past few days. United Peoples’ Freedom Alliance led by the SLFP, UNP and JVP are scheduled to handover their nominations next week. UPFA said their nomination lists would allocate more opportunities for young candidates. It has also taken steps to work with transparency preventing nominations being given to relatives of Electoral Organizers. Intellectuals and Professionals are being given priority in the Alliance Nomination Lists. Acceptance of nominations will end at 12.00 noon on Thursday.
