Alliance to contest General Elections under Chair symbol: Gammanpila

Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) Leader MP Udaya Gammanpila said that there were plans to contest the upcoming general elections with a broad alliance under the Chair symbol.

He added that more discussions regarding the matter would be held in the future.

The parliamentarian was speaking at a press conference at the PHU Headquarters in Pita Kotte, yesterday.

MP Gammanpila said that he was content as to how the country’s law was being enforced under the new government. However, he said that if issues were to arise, he would bring them up in Parliament, or at the Attorney-General’s Office.

The MP also said that an investigation is being held into the white van issue which was brought up by former Health Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne. A new Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE) is to be appointed, and it would pay more attention to ensure the smooth functioning of state institutions, he added.

The previous regime took no action against former Central Bank Governor Arjun Mahendran before he left the country, the MP said, adding that legal action should be taken against all those who are connected to the Central Bank bond scam.
