SLPP infighting over top LG positions! Featured

There is fighting among the SLPP’s winners at the local government election after the party decided that a special supervisory board will appoint heads to the LG bodies it has won, reports say.

The party leadership had previously told them that those who polled the highest numbers of votes at electorate level would be appointed as the chairmen and the deputy chairmen.

Ex-speaker Chamal Rajapaksa has said that any winner of the SLPP would not be allowed to act according to their individual wishes.

He said that development activities should be undertaken by the LG bodies comprising intellectuals.

The party will implement an ethical programme to eliminate corruption and ensure that the previous mistakes will not be repeated, he also said.
