LG Elections (Amendment) Bill For Vote Next Month

May 25, 2011 10:28:18 PM - thesundayleader.lk

The government has said that the proposed Local Authorities Elections (Amendment) Bill would be taken up for voting in parliament next month.

Chief Government Whip and Minister Dinesh Gunawardena has told the media that the bill has been debated in the House and that it would be taken for a vote next month.

Following the debate, the vote on the bill was postponed in order to introduce some amendments to the bill according to requests made by opposition parties.

The proposed bill would result in the introduction of an electoral system that would include both the Proportional Representation system and the First-Past-the Post system for local government elections.
