UPFA will look to take control of CMC

faizer-mustaphaThe United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) will look to take control of the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) which is currently governed by the United National Party.

Minister Faiszer Musthapha said that the UPFA is determined to win the upcoming Local Government (LG) elections under the leadership of President Maithripala Sirisena.

He said that the UPFA will look at taking control of the CMC through the election scheduled to take place in March next year.

The Minister said that the public have a bad impression about members of the Local Government and that impression must change.

He said that today the issue of race and religion does not arise and the public in the country go about their day to day activities as Sri Lankans.

Last week President Maithripala Sirisena had said that he will lead the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) to victory at the upcoming Local Government elections.

He added the SLFP is immortal and he does not want to see the SLFP’s defeat. The President while admitting that the party was defeated at the two previous elections stressed the importance of evolving a programme to ensure its victory after a careful study of the reasons that led to such defeats.

The President added that the party activists who have maintained a good rapport with the public will be selected to contest the polls. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. No mention of 83 looting of Colombo Tamils by Muslims. But its all about the Jaffna man and his smoking irish `gun &justice`.
    Imagine how a faith/emotion from the filthy middle eastern stone has taken over the capital (education/trade) after Baddurdin standardisation of the 70’s supported by the sinhala left chauvinist.
    Its all about sending the sinhala buddhist women to the sex-shops of medieval middle east houses- 4 marriages and so much of carbon.
