WPC dissolutio­n...


WPC dissolutio­n between Jan.12 and 15?

Western Province Chief Minister Prasanna Ranatunga yesterday said an announceme­nt on the dissolutio­n of the Western Provincial Council would be made on January 11 and the dissolutio­n would be done the following week.

Mr. Ranatunga told journalist­s that the council would likely be dissolved on any day between January 12 and January 15.

He said the ruling UPFA had decided not to name chief ministeria­l candidates at this election. Mr. Ranatunga said everyone in the party should respect this party decision.

He claimed three UNP members of the Western provincial council representi­ng the three districts Colombo, Gampaha and Kalutara had held talks with the UPFA leadership in the recent past but there were no vacancies in the party to accommodat­e them. “We have other important things to do rather than wooing members of opposition,” he said.
