69 LG Members to be expelled from UNP

United National Party (UNP) General Secretary Palitha Range Bandara said that the 69 Local Government (LG) members representing the party, who joined the Samagi Jana Balavegaya (SJB) will be expelled from the UNP based on the verdict given in the Supreme Court case.

He made this comment to media personnel subsequent to the media briefing held at Sirikotha Party Headquarters yesterday (09).

Range Bandara said that the above step will be taken according to the order given by the Supreme Court, rejecting the petition submitted by these Local Government Institution members without taking into consideration or even hearing it.

The General Secretary said further that the leader of the Party, former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had informed him to appoint new members to replace the LG members who are being removed from the Party.

General Secretary of the UNP, Palitha Range Bandara said further that the verdict of the Supreme Court reflects very well the fate that befalls those who oppose the Party, through the law.
