The All Ceylon Makkal Congress (ACMC) General Secretary S. Subairdeen states that a court case would be filed after the Gazette notification on the Delimitation Report.

The General Secretary said that the ACMC felt representation of the Muslim population would be very badly affected in the way the new boundaries of wards are demarcated. He further stated that they would lose their legitimate representation in the local authorities in the way the new delimitation boundaries have carved out and Muslim majority areas may become diluted. Therefore, they wish to consult lawyers to file a case in this regard.

He stated that the ACMC would go before the court first and that other small and minority parties are expected to follow suit because they too have the same grievances.

He also pointed out the total number of Local Government members would rise to 11,000 as of the new electoral system, adding that this would lead to unnecessary expenses, not in proportion with our economic system.
