Minister of Finance Mangala Samaraweera stated that the Local Government polls were a 'timely wake-up call' for the Government.
" LG Polls 2018 is a timely wake-up call to Yahapalana Govt to get back on track," he had said.

The Minister in his verified Twitter handle stated that even though former President and......incumbent Parliamentarian Mahinda Rajapaksa's Party, Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) had emerged victorious at the elections, the results clearly show an increase in the anti-Rajapaksa sentiment in the country.

"Despite a good performance at LGPolls2018, Rajapaksa's dream of capturing the Presidency will remain nothing but a dream as anti-MR vote has increased from 51.28% in 2015 to 55.35% in 2018," he said.
