Newly-elected chairmen of union councils and councillors of different wards of municipal committees are still unaware of their power and functions. They have not yet been briefed or informed about their working and authority.

The elected representatives who have spent their time and resources in the local bodies elections are disturbed and disappointed.

As per a report, a period of four months has passed since the Municipal Committee elections were held, yet the government has neither held elections for Chairman Municipal Committee and Chairman District Council nor the elections have been held on reserved seats.

The councillors have also not been briefed about their authorities and responsibilities.

They are also hesitant to meet the public. Similarly, the councillors are facing problems regarding development work underway at different places in Kamalia city. When people come to these representatives with the objective to get their problems resolved, they appear unable to satisfy their voters.
