UNP sources say that former Eastern Provincial Council Opposition Leader Dayaa Gamagey is scheduled to be appointed as Eastern Provincial Council Chief Minister candidate at the Provincial Council election this time.
Similarly these sources said further that the party has decided not to name Chief Minister candidates for the Sabaragamuwa and North Central Provincial councils.
The UNP has appointed a special four-member committee for Provincial Council election supervision.
Party leader Ranil Wickremesinghe, Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa,
Chairman Jayawikrama Perera and General Secretary Tissa Attanayake are
members of this committee.
A UNP spokesman said that while the UNP election campaign would be subjected to monitoring via this committee the aim is to administer the party members in a proper manner at the election.
However a special UNP Working Committee meeting has been called today
for discussion about the Provincial Council Election.
At this meeting working committee approval is due to be obtained for several decisions regarding the election.
