The UNP is to decide this week on the heads to the local government bodies that were won by the party.
UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake has told the media that the party is currently in the process of deciding the heads to the local government bodies and that the names would be finalized by Thursday (24).
He has said the party was also in the process of deciding on the opposition leader to the rest of the local government bodies.
According to Attanayake, when deciding the heads to the local government bodies, the party would consider their services to the party and seniority apart from the preferential votes polled by them at the elections.
The UNP secured power in nine local government bodies at last week’s local government elections.
