Provincial Councils and Local Government Minister Faizer Mustapha says the local government elections most probably will be held in April this year.

He said that the delimitation committee report will be handed over to him on January 17.

“The handing over of the delimitation report was delayed due to several technical issues. The matter was lengthily discussed at a party leaders’ meeting at the Parliament complex yesterday,” he said.

“There are over 50 technical errors in the report and they will need time to go through those,” the Minister said.
