MP Nishantha’s SLFP membership is cancelled


The Central working committee of the SLFP has decided to cancel the party membership of MP Sanath Nishantha.

General Secretary of the SLFP, Minister Mahinda Amaraweera stated that the decision was taken as a result of criticising the party leadership and activities of the party.

Meanwhile, The SLFP Central Committee has decided to abolish the membership of former Kurunegala local government representatives responsible for destroying interview letters.

The SLFP Central Committee met last night at the President’s official residence with President Maithripala Sirisena at the chair.
