By Maheesha Mudugamuwa

UPFA General Secretary and Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Development Minister Mahinda Amaraweera yesterday said that the UPFA or SLFP had not entered into any agreement regarding the hung local government (LG) institutions.

The UPFA General Secretary however said the support of both SLFP and UPFA members would be necessary for controlling 167 LG bodies.

Amaraweera told The Island that the appointment of all members of Municipal Council and Urban Councils as well as the members of Pradeshiya Sabhas would be decided after the Election Commission declared the numbers of representatives and following the recommendations of National Organisers and District Leaders of both SLFP and UPFA.

"It will take a few days," he added.
