SLFP proposal wants LG polls held on time Featured

The SLFP central committee that met last night (22) adopted a resolution that says the election for local government bodies should be held as planned, without any postponement, reports say.

At the meeting chaired by president Mathripala Sirisena, party treasurer S.B. Dissanayake said they would go to courts seeking orders for the conduct of the polls.

He rejected allegations the SLFP was trying to put off the election.

Dissanayake also refuted a claim by D.M. Jayaratne that they had discussed uniting with the joint opposition at the LG polls.

Such talk has taken place unofficially only, not at official level, he said.
