Badulla MC’s functions temporarily suspended

Uva Province Governor A.J.M. Muzzammil on Tuesday evening issued a special Gazette notification bringing the Badulla Municipal Council under a Special Commissioner temporarily.

The Governor arrived at decision as the Badulla Municipal Council has become virtually defunct with the Mayor failing to garner the support of the majority of the Councillors. The SLPP jointly with SLFP managed to win the confidence of the majority of the members of the Council.

The Governor through an Extraordinary Gazette Notification appointed Administrative Service Officer Jeevantha Herath as the Special Commissioner to implement and perform the functions of the Badulla Municipal Council.
