Two petitions filed against General Secretaries of the UPFA and the SLFP, Susil Premajayantha and Anura Priyadarshana Yapa were withdrawn today.
The two petitions had been filed with the Colombo District court by Professor Vishwa Warnapala and Duminda Dissanayake after they were appointed to the two positions respectively.
In their petitions, the duo requested the court to prevent both Premajayantha and Dissanayake to not obstruct them in performing their duties in the new posts.
Meanwhile Susil Premajayantha who functioned as the UPFA General Secretary in the past resigned from the position.
Attorney-at-law appeared for the petitioners told our news team that the two petitions were withdrawn after Anura Priyadarshana Yapa announced that he would not intervene in the new SLFP General Secretary’s affairs.
