SLFP to oust party seniors from posts

Sri Lanka Freedom Party Senior Vice President Prof. Rohana Luxman Piyadasa is considering removing several senior members from various positions they hold in the party.

“The party is contemplating removing the positions held by those who accepted ministerial portfolios in the Government,” he said.

SLFP Senior Vice Presidents Mahinda Amaraweera and Nimal Siripala de Silva accepted Cabinet Minister portfolios of the Ranil Wickremesinghe-led all-party Government.

In addition, SLFP Treasurer Lasantha Alagiyawanna, the party’s Deputy Secretaries Jagath Pushpakumara and Chamara Sampath Dassanayake had sworn-in as State Ministers recently.

“There will be changes of the positions of SLFP in the future,” Prof. Piyadasa said.
