04th of Jun 2020

The Working Committee of the United National Party (UNP) has arrived at a unanimous decision to confirm the suspension of 99 party members who had handed over nominations from the Samagi Jana Balawegaya.

UNP’s Working Committee meeting, chaired by its leader and former PM Ranil Wickremesinghe, was held at the party headquarters, Sirikotha premises, in the morning.

In a statement issued several days ago, UNP General Secretary Akila Viraj Kariyawasam had stated that as per the party’s constitution prior permission needs to be obtained from the Working Committee before handing over nominations through another political party.

He noted that none of these members had obtained prior approval in writing.
