Reliable sources said yesterday that, Jaffna Mayor is to be elected by secret vote. The election of Mayors for Jaffna Municipal Council and Chavakachcheri TC are to be held tomorrow. It is expected that great confusions could occur during these election.
TNPF has fielded AAL, Maivannan, the TNA had fielded E. Arnold and the EPDP had fielded Remedius as candidates for this election. If more than one candidate are proposed the Commissioner will go for voting. He will call for a decision on whether the voting should be done secretly or publicly. Voting will be done as per majority decision.
The same thing will happen in Chavakachcheri TC also. Because of these situations it is expexted that lot of confusions will prevail. Meanwhile, High level members of political parties are in negotiations with members.
Rumours rife that due opposition has been expressed by EPDP, and internal opposition, Arnold may be replaced by Solomon Cyril.
