UNP WC suspends 100 party members

The Working Committee of the United National Party has unanimously decided to suspend the party membership of nearly 100 UNP members, including those who submitted nominations to contest the General Election under the Samagi Jana Balawegaya ticket.

The party Working Committee convened at party headquarters Sirikotha this morning, while further action is due to be taken against the members in question in future.

However General Secretary of the Samagi Jana Balawegaya Ranjith Madduma Bandara said the Samagi Jana Balawegaya was formed in line with a decision reached by the UNP Working Committee.

He stressed that decisions reached by a small minority of UNP Working Committee Members who convened at Sirikotha today were undemocratic.
