NFF decides to contest alone in Uva


NFF Leader Wimal Weerawansa said his party would contest the Uva Provincial Council election under its own symbol.


During a media briefing held in Colombo this morning he said the decision was taken due to certain actions of this government.


Meanwhile former Uva Provincial councilor W.A. Udaya Kumara who quit NFF to join SLFP has faced the SLFP nomination board yesterday.


Udaya Kumara told our news team he is optimistic to receive nomination to contest in the forthcoming election under UPFA ticket.


However NFF candidate and former MP Padma Udaya Shantha said earlier he would not contest under the UPFA ticket if defiant Udaya Kumara is given nomination under the UPFA.


Meanwhile accepting nominations for the Uva Provincial Council Election will begin tomorrow.


Senior Spokesmen of major political parties told our news team their member nominations would be handed over on August 5 and 6.
