Sun, Jan 12, 2014, 10:47 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 12, Colombo: Sri Lanka Marxist party, Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) has changed its traditional propaganda methods for the upcoming Western and Southern Provincial Council elections.

JVP politburo member K.D. Lal Kantha said that the leaders of the districts and electorates are promoted at this election. Earlier, the party did not promote individual candidates.

Lal Kantha said that the party would request the polity to give priority to these candidates when electing representatives to the Provincial Councils.

Lal Kantha said that the party had already compiled the nomination lists and the leaders of the district teams had been named.

However, political analysts say that the party is struggling to guarantee minimum representation through various tactics.
