The UNP has been able to solidify its position in the Colombo Municipal Council by electing 60 members on its ticket at the recently concluded Local Government polls.The team led by Rosy Senanayake won the elections without breaking a sweat and she is now poised to become Colombo's first female mayor.Informed sources said that a tussle has already emerged within the UNP for the post of Deputy Mayor with Mohammad Arshad and another candidate, who is said to be backed by a group of UNP Colombo District Parliamentarians, leading the pack.

However, sources said that while Senanayake is said to be backing Arshad's bid to be Deputy, it will be a fight right up to the very end.
