Public Councils before LG polls! | Breaking News

President Ranil Wickremesinghe has decided to establish ‘Public Councils’ (Jana Sabha) covering the 14,000 Grama Niladhari Divisions before holding the local government elections.

A special committee has been appointed for the implementation and planning of the formation of Jana Sabhas under the chairmanship of former speaker Karu Jayasuriya.

Mr. Jayasuriya said that proposals being prepared by taking expert opinions to appoint apolitical public councils at the Grama Niladhari level will be finalized next week.

The people from the community are invited to forward proposals for the development of the area through Public Councils.

The protesters at the Galle Face Green site also demanded to get the contribution of the community to develop an area.

Meanwhile, the Elections Commission has made plans to hold the local government elections in March next year.
