In the aftermath of the defeat at the local government elections, the United National Party (UNP) is said to be considering whether to revert to the previous system of Proportional Representation for the Provincial Council Elections.   


 The government postponed the Provincial Council Elections till a new systems of a mix of the First-Past-the-Post and Proportional Representation was worked out.   

The delimitation committee appointed to demarcate the provincial wards had submitted its report.
