President sacks Anura and Susil; appoints Duminda and Vishwa

August 14, 2015   04:22 pm

The Colombo District Court today issued an enjoining order preventing Anura Priyadharshana Yapa and Susil Premajayantha from acting and discharging duties as the General Secretaries of the SLFP and UPFA respectively until August 28, 2015.

President Maithripala Sirisena in his capacity as the Chairman of the SLFP and UPFA has suspended the party memberships of Anura Priyadharshana Yapa and Susil Premajayantha and has also removed them from the posts of General Secretary. 

Meanwhile the President has appointed Minister Duminda Dissanayake as the Acting General Secretary of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) and ex-Minister Prof. Vishwa Warnapala as Acting General Secretary of the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA). 

Consequently Duminda Dissanayake and Prof. Warnapala have sought an enjoining order to prevent the former General Secretaries from carrying out duties in their former capacities.
