UNP, SLFP representatives in shameless attempt - CaFFE

CaFFE accuses the UNP and SLFP representatives in the delimitation committee of being involved in a shameless attempt to get the local government elections postponed.

Subject minister Faizer Mustafa today (02) refused to accept the committee’s report, as the two members from those parties had not signed the document.

CaFFE says in a statement that if not for the direct mediation of leaders of the two parties, Ranil Wickremesinghe and Maithripala Sirisena, no such delay in signing the report would have happened.

It says the postponement of the election has created crises in LG bodies, and urges political parties and civil society organizations to take the lead in defeating this shameless attempt.
