The Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) announced that they would be fielding a mix of persons including those garnering public support at the grass roots level as well as professionals, at the upcoming Local Government elections.

General Secretary of the SLPP, Attorney-at-Law Sagara Kariyawasam said that the Party would finalize the nominations list in the next two weeks.

SLPP is also finalizing Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) with other parties with the view of building a wider alliance.

"We are deciding on whom to field as candidates and whom to avoid. One category of candidates will be popular figures at grass roots level who are involved in social activities and have the public support, while the other category will include professionals such as doctors, engineers and lawyers whom we also want to include in every LG authority," he explained.
