Trincomalee Election Office has made arrangement to accept nominations lists from registered political parties and independent groups to contest thirteen local authorities including two Urban Councils (UC) and eleven Pradesiya Sabah (PS) from Thursday February 9 till 16th February. Till Thursday deposits were made on behalf of two Muslim independent groups, one for Kinniya UC and other for Kuchchaveli PS. Altogether 118 councilors will be elected for the thirteen local authorities, sources said.

Total number of registered electors in the Trincomalee district according to 2004 Voters Register is two hundred thirty eight thousand and seven hundred and seventy five. The entire extent of newly carved out Verugal PS is located in the LTTE controlled Eachchilampathu AGA division. Eleven of 42 GN divisions in the Muttur PS is located in the LTTE controlled Muttur east territory.
