A large number of applications from prospective candidates for the upcoming Local Government elections have been received by now, says the United National Party (UNP). District level interviews are to be held on October 16 and 17.
UNP chairman Gamini Jayawickrema Perera said that this time round, the main emphasis in picking candidates will be their loyalty to the party.
If those who held office in the earlier councils or LG institutions were desirous of contesting, they too should send in their applications to UNP headquarters, said Gamini Jayawickrema Perera.
