Sept 02, Colombo: The organizing committee meeting of Sri Lanka’s major opposition United National Party (UNP) Colombo Central electorate is to be held on September 04.
The Opposition and UNP leader Ranil Wickremasinghe is to chair the meeting. He has taken over the party chief organizer position of the electorate to himself.
Central Colombo electorate is considered the backbone of UNP’s strength in the Colombo Municipal Council.
The party is in a crisis since the electoral organizer of the Colombo Central electorate Mohammed Maharoof has joined the government and contesting the Municipal Council election under ruling United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) ticket.
All eyes are focused on Colombo Municipal Council election since the ruling party has vowed to break the domination of the UNP in the city.
