De­lim­i­ta­tion re­port

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - FRONT PAGE - BY SANDUN A JAYASEKERA

Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment and Pro­vin­cial Coun­cils Min­is­ter Faizer Musthapha said he would sign the gazette no­ti­fi­ca­tion that con­tains the de­lim­i­ta­tion re­port to­day and send it to the Gov­ern­ment Printer, and that he ex­pected the much de­layed gazette to be is­sued next week.

How­ever, I ex­pect the gazette will be re­leased dur­ing the course of next week

Mr. Musthapha said it would take some time for the Gov­ern­ment Printer to print the gazette as it was bulky -- with the de­lim­i­ta­tion re­port com­pris­ing 30 books and three vol­umes.

“How­ever, I ex­pect the gazette will be re­leased dur­ing the course of next week,” he said. He told re­porters at the weekly SLFP news brief­ing that the amend­ments pro­posed in the de­lim­i­ta­tion re­port and the pro­pos­als made by the mi­nor­ity par­ties would have to be in­cor­po­rated into the Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Elec­toral (Amend­ments) Act of 2012 be­fore the elec­tions were de­clared by the Elec­tions Sec­re­tar­iat. In ad­di­tion, the new bound­aries of the lo­cal gov­ern­ment bod­ies amended by the de­lim­i­ta­tion com­mit­tee will also have to be gazetted ac­cord­ing to the Act, he said.
