Members of Aragalaya to form a political party


A group of protesters at the GotaGoGama protest site at Galle Face Green yesterday met the head of the Election Commission (EC) to register a new political party.

The new political party has been named ‘Jana Aragalaye Purawesiyo’ or the ‘Citizens of the Public Protest’.

A representative of the group said they decided to register a new political party with the EC on behalf of all citizens who came forward to raise their voice against the current political culture of this country and its corrupt politicians.
