( April 20, 2014, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) The President has made a final decision on the dates of Uva provincial council election and the presidential election. Accordingly, the Uva provincial council election is speculated to be held on mid-September this year and presidential election on January 30 next year, reports ' Mawbima' newspaper.
President's Adviser on Astrology, Deshabandu Sumanadasa Abeygunawardene says according to the President's horoscope, he would experience an auspicious and powerful period only after 15 January 2015.
The President, who is born under the zodiac sign Virgo, in his horoscope will have Jupiter exalted and move to the 11th house by 19 June. "This is a very auspicious movement but due to the retrograde movement of Jupiter in December, the good fortune of this movement will only be experienced after 15 January next year,” he has said.
Accordingly, following the New Year vacation the seniors of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) are to be informed of the election organizing activities and will be advised take measures to activate grass root level branch organizations of SLFP which are currently inactive and develop them.
The aim is to assess the maximum power the government possesses at the Uva provincial council election and it is also revealed that several crucial changes are to be made in relation to electoral organizers.
