Hold Provincial Council polls expeditiously:- SLFP

State Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara testifying before the Select Committee of Parliament

The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) has made a proposal that it would be appropriate to hold the Provincial Council elections expeditiously, under the former election system the least limited to this particular election alone.

The proposal was made by State Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara who was testifying on behalf of the SLFP before the Select Committee of Parliament to Identify Appropriate Reforms of the Election Laws and the Electoral System and to Recommend Necessary Amendments held on Wednesday, December 2.

Dayasiri Jayasekara said:

“Many problems have risen due to postponing of the provincial council elections for a long time. My party is of the view that the provincial council elections should be held immediately. Furthermore, local government elections should be held in the first quarter of next year. The number of local government representatives should be limited to a maximum of 5500. It is not appropriate to extend the term of local government bodies. The public opinion is that the number of seats in local government bodies should be reduced.”
