SLMC to contest with the UPFA

The Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) has decided to contest the upcoming Provincial Council Elections for three provinces with the ruling UPFA, the government information department said today.

The decision was taken by the SLMC High Command which met last evening, the information department said adding that the party will contest in all three provinces including the Eastern Province with the UPFA.

Earlier the SLMC raised doubts in contesting with the UPFA unless the government assured the Eastern Province Chief Ministerial post to the SLMC if the UPFA won the polls in the East.
