President Maithripala Sirisena said that decent people’s representatives should be elected to the local government institutions to achieve the development plans of the country in a speedy manner.

The President stated this addressing a public rally at Hingurakgoda, on Thursday. The rally was organised to ensure the victory of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) candidates contesting in the election for the Hingurakgoda Pradesheeya Sabha.

Furthermore, the President said that people should fulfil their duty in a responsible manner in this election as it is the first step to rectify the errors and create a people friendly, corruption free political culture in the country. 

We should elect disciplined political representatives for the Local Government institutions as it is the first step of creating national political leaders, the President said. He added that with the emergence of clean, honest people’s representatives in the Local Government institutions, the whole political culture would turn into the right direction. 

President Sirisena emphasised that he will not allow any of the people’s representatives elected under the SLFP banner to commit erroneous activities and further said that as the Chairman of the SLFP he will take that responsibility.

On this occasion several prominent UNP activists in Moragaswewa, Ulpath Wewa, Giritale, Ulkatupotha, Hathgampaththuwa, Siriketa divisions joined the SLFP extending their support to the President. The Maha Sangha of the area, other religious leaders, people’s representatives and many others participated in this meeting.
