Video: UNP objects the amendment of local government act.
The UNP has objected to the government’s decision to re-amend the Special Provisions Ordinance of the Local Government Institutions Act that was passed last year.
During a media briefing held in Colombo today, UNP General Secretary MP Tissa Attanayake said the government has rushed to amend the Act again after the budgets of several of its local government institutions were defeated last year.
Meanwhile journalists questioned MP Attanayake about the absence of MP Gayantha Karunatilaka at the party Bala Mandala meeting in Galle yesterday.
The Bala Mandala meeting was held under the patronage of Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe at Vajira Abeywardana’s, Ulu-viti-ke residence yesterday.
