UNP WC to decide on fate of members who obtained SJB nominations

The decisions on the suspension of members who obtained nominations from the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) for the upcoming General Election will be taken at the next Working Committee (WC) meeting, United National Party (UNP) General-Secretary Akila Viraj Kariyawasam said. Issuing a media statement today, the General Secretary said, “The Members in question have not complied with the UNP Constitution, and have not obtained the prior approval of the Working Committee. The said conduct of the Members has compelled the Leader of the UNP to act in terms of Article 3(h) of the Party Constitution in order to protect and safeguard the best interest of the Party. “Several candidates have now expressed their regret for having taken the course of action to contest from other political parties. However, letters have been sent out to all Members who had placed their names on the nomination lists of other Political Parties calling for their explanations. Any explanation which will be forthcoming from the Members will be placed before the Working Committee of the UNP at its next meeting for appropriate action.”
