The first Northern Provincial Council session begins today.

The first Northern Provincial Council session will thus take place after the inauguration of new Provincial Council Complex constructed at Kayithadi in Jaffna.

The TNA was victorious at the provincial council election held on 21st September this year.

While at that election they obtained 30 seats inclusive of two bonus seats, the UPFA secured seven seats.

The Sri Lanka Muslim Congress too won a seat.

However, after the election a problematic situation arose in the TNA with regard to assigning of minister posts.

Consequently only 21 councilors had participated in the swearing in ceremony held on 11th this month.

The five E.P.R.L.F. councilors, Councillor M. L. Sivaajilingam and two councilors representing the PLOTE boycotted the ceremony.
