UNP wants PC, LG elections held on a single day Featured

The UNP has called for the conduct of elections for all the provincial councils and local government bodies on a single day.

A young minister from the party has told ‘Ravaya’ that there was a dialogue within the party in that regard.

He said postponing elections would be bad for the government, noting that there was trouble within the government due to the elections being put off owing to the internal strife in the SLFP.

The minister added that holding the PC and LG elections on a single day would help save a big amount of money that will be a wise decision in view of the prevailing economic crisis.
