High Drama at SLFP Headquarters: CBK Arrives at Political Bureau Meeting After Court Bars Sirisena

In a stunning turn of events at the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) Headquarters, former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga arrived amidst high drama to participate in a crucial political bureau meeting. The meeting was convened following a landmark court decision that barred former President Maithripala Sirisena from continuing as Chairman of the SLFP.

The verdict, a result of a case filed by Kumaratunga herself, has sent shockwaves through the party ranks. Amidst the turbulence, Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva extended an invitation to Kumaratunga to attend the political bureau meeting, marking her pivotal involvement in navigating the party’s future.

The court’s decision to oust Sirisena from the SLFP leadership has thrown the party into uncertainty, prompting urgent discussions among its members. With Kumaratunga’s presence adding weight to the proceedings, the meeting aimed to chart a course forward for the SLFP in the wake of Sirisena’s removal.

The political bureau meeting was expected to address pressing issues, including the party’s leadership succession, strategic direction, and efforts to maintain cohesion among its members.
