The UNP lost control of the municipal councils of Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Negombo, Dehiwala-Mt. Lavinia and Gampaha.
According to final results, the UPFA has secured 245 seats in all the 23 LG bodies, followed by 131 seats by the UNP, 11 seats by the SLMC, five seats by the JVP and 28 seats by independent groups.

All idiots in Sri Lanka has given the majority again to UPFA, this will help the curropt polotitions to get more commissions from the porjects and spend all the public money..for them to make profits.
This defeat sends the strogest message to the rebels in the UNP.
Despite Mr RW’s personal involvement in the campaign, the UNP has lost control of 5 local authorities. They have a dead-duck Mayor in Colombo where Mr GR as the boss of the UDA, has complete control over the development of Colombo.
It is time for the rebels in the UNP not only to flex their muscles but to act with determination to revive the fortunes of the party. They owe this to the people of Sri Lanka.
In the meantime, the bulldozers move into action tomorrow and the noodle-eaters will be jumping with joy for the large parcels of land at 1/2 price plus commissions.
Airports in Kandy and Nuwara-Eliya and a spanking new planned city in Kandy.
Here they come.
The General Secretary of the UNP will be beating his drums tommorrow about vote rigging and unfair election practices. he will also talk abot how the UNP has increased its voter base despite the rigging and other things.
Of course, no one listens to him as always.
The destroyer of UNP and Democracy still hangs as the Leader of UNP. MR is the happiest man and he will do anything to keep RW at the helm.
airport එකට කලින් නුවර TRRAFIC එක අඩු කරන්න වැවට උඩින් පාලමක් හෝ මාළිගාව ළඟ පාර අරින්න අවශ්යයි.!
Good result. Bravo! but the plum seat of CMC remains still in the hands of a Muslim. Tamil and Muslim ‘refugees’ from North and East were planted in Colombo on massive scale in the last 20 years to ensure CMC remains always in the hands of UNP, Muslim leader. Islamisation of SL is making inroads, starting from Colombo. Wake up Buddhist Sinhala majority!
