The Cabinet has granted approval to make amendments to the Provincial Council Special Provisions Act which was passed during last year.

Deputy Minister of Local Government & Provincial Councils Indika Bandaranayake stated that accordingly the act will be amended expediently and presented in Parliament.

Previously, heads of Local Government Institutions had the ability to continue functioning in their post even after the budget of such an institution was defeated several times.

The government then passed the Provincial Council Special Provisions Act which amended the above provision to state that if the budget of a local government institution is defeated twice the head of such an institution loses his post.

However, Deputy Minister of Local Government & Provincial Councils Indika Bandaranayake stated that after the budgets of several local government institutions were consecutively defeated a decision was made to amend the act.
