"We will seek the assistance of the international community which has been stressing the importance of democratic governance and devolution of power, if the elected administration encounters any form of intimidation or coercion," added Mr. Gowrimuhunthan.

Mr. Gowrimuhunthan further said: "We seek constructive contribution of the law enforcement authorities and the judiciary for implementing development projects for the betterment of the ratepayers and people. We also seek their help to safeguard the assets and properties of the UC."

The administrative machinery of the North East Provincial Council (NEPC) and District Administration are located within the administrative area of the Trincomalee UC.

The Trincomalee harbor and other economic development projects are also located within the UC administrative limit. These contribute to the development and growth of the local council administration, said Mr. Gowrimuhunthan.
