Those who lost the LG election can still be appointed!

A candidate who has lost at divisional level at the LG election, could still be appointed under the proportional list, according to the Election’s Commission.

The Commission said the power to appoint a member through the proportional list lies with the party secretary or in the case of an independent group, the group leader and even if a certain member had failed to win, he/she can still be appointed through this proportional list.

However, any person whose name is not on the contesting list or the proportional list cannot be appointed to any LG institution under any circumstance, the Election Commission noted.
