SLPP member elected Nawalapitiya UC’s new chairman

A councillor from the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) has been elected as the Chairman of the Nawalapitiya Urban Council, which was controlled by the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB), after a majority of councillors voted with the SLPP.

The Governor of the Central Province had recently removed SJB member Sasanka Sampath Sanjeewa from the chairmanship and membership of the urban council, through an Extraordinary Gazette notification.

Subsequently the election to select a new Chairman for the urban council was held today (15) at the meeting hall of the council, presided by Central Province Local Government Commissioner Menaka Herath.
