New Mayor for Jaffna

Tamil National People’s Front (TNPF) member V. Manivannan has been appointed as the new Mayor of Jaffna Municipal Council. Hence, the position of the Mayor in Jaffna has been shifted from the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) to the TNPF.

Manivannan was selected to chair at a vote held yesterday at Jaffna MC following the resignation of former Mayor E. Arnold.

Arnold stepped down from the post after the second reading of the Municipal Council’s budget for financial year 2021 was defeated by two votes. Manivannan secured 21 votes while E. Arnold could obtain only 20 votes in favour of his Municipal Council’s budget for FY 2021. The election to elect the Nallur Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman was to be held yesterday evening.
