The list of heads for the 205 Local Bodies won by the United People’s Freedom Alliance has been handed over to the Elections Commissioner.
The Freedom Alliance secured power of 205 of the 234 Local Councils for which polls were conducted recently. The Heads for these Local Bodies were selected by a Committee headed by Minister Susil Premajayantha who is also the General Secretary of the Party. It was decided to appoint as heads of many of the Local Councils candidates who obtained the highest preferences. Minister Premajayantha however said that preference was not considered as criteria for certain local bodies when appointing the heads.
