Minister of Public Services, Provincial Councils and Local Government Janaka Bandara Tennakoon emphasised that there is no truth in the media propagation that the Provincial Council Election will be held in June. The Minister made this observation yesterday (03), in response to reporters' queries on the holding of a provincial council election.
"I have the same response which was given to you by the President; even I saw the news on papers, that the Election id due on June. Even we weren't aware of it. This cannot happen as simple as that. Now it's March. I wonder who has said it.. I'm looking," the Minister said.
