Susil resigns as UPFA General Secretary

August 25, 2015   12:59 pm

Susil Premajayantha on Tuesday (25) tendered his resignation letter to the President as the General Secretary of the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA).

“I am disappointed as some of the coalition partners of the UPFA tend to mislead the people with media statements and press conferences. I am too disappointed with the acts of some UPFA members who show no intention of protecting the party,” Premajayantha said in the letter.

An enjoining order has also been issued to prevent Anura Priyadharshana Yapa and Susil Premajayantha from acting and discharging duties as the General Secretaries of the SLFP and UPFA respectively.

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

The President then appointed Minister Duminda Dissanayake as the Acting General Secretary of the SLFP and ex-Minister Prof. Vishwa Warnapala as Acting General Secretary of the UPFA.
