Samarawickrama replaces Athukorala


S. Jagath Samarawickrama was appointed by Election Commission of Sri Lanka (ECSL) to fill the vacancy following the death of SLPP MP Amarakeerthi Athukorala.

The Polonnaruwa District MP was killed in Nittambuwa during the unrest that broke out last week.

Following the demise of Athukorala, Samarawickrama from the same electoral district would fill the seat, ECSL stated.
