Kurunegala MC budget defeated by 14 votes

0 86

The budget presented to the council yesterday (20) by Mayor Thushara Sanjeeva Witharana of the Kurunegala Municipal Council was defeated by 14 votes.

It was significant that only 8 council members commented on the budget. Many said that the decisions made by the council over the past few years have failed and were full of frauds and corruption. After the Mayor’s speech of thanks, the vote was taken.

Accordingly the 2023 budget of the Kurunegala Municipal Council received 7 votes in favour from the 21 members. The ruling party was defeated with 14 votes against.

This is the first time that the Kurunegala Municipal Council, which had secured the power of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP), lost a budget during their term of office.

Rajitha Jayawardene, who represented the ruling party, former mayor Gamini Peramuna and members of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party who supported the ruling party so far voted against the budget. Members representing the United National Party, Samagi Jana Balavegaya and Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna voted against the budget. Member Selvanayagi, who represented the United National Party, voted in favour of the budget.
