LG polls, an anti-govt. referendum - SLPP

According to unconfirmed results of the 2018 LG polls, the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) backed by former President Mahinda Rajapaksa is currently ahead of other parties with a massive lead.

Unconfirmed reports say that the SLPP is in the lead in 15 districts while the UNP is leading in the Colombo Municipality area.

Speaking on this regard, a bigwig of the SLPP said that this election could be considered as a anti-government referendum.

All surveys, untrue!

Although intelligence reports had claimed that the two main political parties in the government were ahead in all the LG bodies, the actual mandate had proven to be otherwise.
