The UNP’s mayoral candidate for the Colombo Municipal Council, Rosy Senanayake predicts that her party will win the Council at the forthcoming Local Government Election by securing 80 percent of the seats on offer.

Addressing the UNP’s 70th anniversary celebrations, held at Campbell Park in Borella on Sunday, Rosy commended the UNP for ensuring that women’s representation had for the first time been increased to 25 percent in local, provincial and national legislatures.

"This is a huge victory for us," she noted adding that it was under UNP administrations that women had the most opportunities to progress in life.

Rosy urged all voters in Colombo including women, to cast their ballots in numbers for her team of candidates, since it was also under UNP administrations that their electorate had seen development.

"I am confident of leading the UNP to victory in Colombo by securing 80 percent of the seats on offer," she added.

General Secretary of the UNP Kabir Hashim said that the UNP would win a majority of the Local Councils, since it had ushered in democracy, after a decade of dictatorial rule under the Mahinda Rajapaksa Government.

"In the last three years, we have been able to free the Public Service including the judiciary and police from political interference", he said. "The good governance we initiated, is now being practised by other political parties as well."

Hashim said that unlike during the previous government, democracy was functioning within Parliament as well.
