The total population of 20 million people of Sri Lanka is supposed to elect 9215 members- 225 MPs for the Parliament, the supreme body of governance, 455 Councilors for Provincial Councils and 8535 members for local government bodies to represent them in these bodies to deliver the demands of the citizens which they themselves cannot achieve single handed as individuals.
