Dec 24, Colombo: Ally of Sri Lanka's ruling alliance, the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) has decided to contest separately at the provincial council elections to be held next year.

The party said it will contest separately in the Western and Southern Provincial Council elections expected to be held in March next year.

The SLMC's decision making bodies have held several discussions on deciding how the party would contest at the provincial council elections and selecting the candidates to contest from the party.
