Colombo (LNW): The National Delimitation Committee chaired by former Election Commission Chairman Mahinda Deshapriya is set to submit its final report in around the third week of May.
The Committee has reportedly received almost 400 proposals from various parties regarding its interim report submitted to the Prime Minister in April, 2023, and these proposals are currently being analysed and reviewed, Committee Chief Deshapriya noted.
Accordingly, the Committee’s observations will be shared with the relevant stakeholders, including political parties, civil society activists and other concerned groups, he added.
The National Delimitation Committee was formed in 2020 aiming the slashing of the number of local government members to around 4,000, in the objective of streamlining the administration and ensuring more efficient governance at the local governance bodies.
