UPFA Appoints Seven Member Committee

Mar 22, 2011 1:34:21 PM - thesundayleader.lk

The governing UPFA has appointed a seven member committee headed by former Prime Minister and Senior Minister Ratnasiri Wickremanayake to decide on the members to be appointed as heads of the local government bodies that were won by the Alliance at last week’s elections.

UPFA General Secretary and Minister Susil Premajayantha told a press conference that polling the highest number of preferential votes at the election would not make any candidate the automatic choice to head the respective council.

The committee is to decide on the persons this week as the names of the local government councilors are to be gazetted next week.
