Former Prez Chandrika Kumaratunga removed from organizer post of Sri Lanka Freedom Party

AIR
In Sri Lanka, former President Chandrika Kumaratunga has been removed from the organizer post of Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP).

SLFP General Secretary Dayasiri Jayasekera said that the SLFP Central Committee and polit-bureau had reached the decision.

Mrs Kumaratunga, who served as President from 1995 to 2005, has remained active in politics and was appointed as the SLFP organiser for Attanagalla in October 2017.

However, she had supported Sajith Premadasa at the Presidential election last year after the SLFP decided to support Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

SLFP central committee in its meeting last night also decided to support President Gotabaya Rajapaksa at the forthcoming General elections by working together towards obtaining a two-thirds majority in the parliament.

SLFP, founded by Chandrika’s father late Bandarnaike, is headed by former President Maithripala Sirisena. Sri Lanka People’s party (SLPP) headed by former President Mahinda Rajapksa, is a breakaway group from SLFP after Rajapaksa lost the 2015 Presidential elections to Sirisena.
