7 SLFP organizers to lose their positions! Featured

Seven SLFP MPs who left the government and joined the joint opposition are going to lose their electoral organizer positions, according to party headquarters sources.

They are Susil Premajayantha, Anura Priyadarshana Yapa, John Seneviratne, Chandima Weerakkody, T.B. Ekanayake, Lakshman Yapa Abeywardena and Tharanath Basnayake.

Among them are three senior vice presidents of the party.

The seven MPs had not yet conducted their respective Bala Mandala meetings despite instructions to hold them before the party anniversary and the general meeting.

Since their organizing activities are weak, they will be replaced, the sources say, adding the district organizers have been asked to recommend persons with qualifications.

SLFP general secretary Prof. Rohana Lakshman Piyadasa says three others - Sumedha Jayasena, Sudarshani Fernandopulle and Thilanga Sumathipala – have promised to hold the Bala Mandala meetings next week.

S.B. Dissanayake, Dilan Perera, Lakshman Wasantha Perera, Anuradha Jayaratne and Dayasiri Jaysekara have informed him that they have formed their Bala Mandala.

Recently, Susantha Punchinilame was removed from the organizer position.

A committee will meet today at the party headquarters to discuss the organizer positions, according to ‘Mawbima.’
