The National Election Commission has issued a statement regarding the controversy surrounding the General Secretary of the United Peoples’ Freedom Alliance.
The Commission has announced that it will not recognize Minister Mahinda Amaraweera or former Member of Parliament Thilanga Sumathipala as the UPFA General Secretary until the completion of investigations over the issue.
Thilanga Sumathipala had recently informed the Election Commission to recognize him as the UPFA General Secretary.
Subsequently, Minister Amaraweera had informed the Commission that he remains the UPFA’s General Secretary.
Considering both requests, the Election Commission has announced that it will not accept Mahinda Amaraweera or Thilanga Sumathipala as the UPFA General Secretary until the completion of investigations.
