SLPP to make key changes – Gen Secy


Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) General Secretary, Sagara Kariyawasam said there will be changes in key positions in the party.

He said steps will also be taken to oust those who were against SLPP decisions in the recent past from their respective positions held in the party.

Kariyawasam said such changes will be made at the Party Convention scheduled for next month.

Previously, Kariyawasam said certain SLPP MPs are hatching a conspiracy to achieve their separate political aspirations, adding that they have also succeeded in making use of the economic crisis for political benefit.

Kariyawasam charged that several in the ruling party made an attempt to make the SLPP lose its majority in Parliament and they even wrote to former President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and former Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, urging them to step down.

Moreover, during the Presidential Election held in Parliament, Kariyawasam issued a statement that the SLPP will support Ranil Wickremesinghe, to which SLPP Chairman, Prof. G.L. Peiris, in a letter, expressed his disapproval, while questioning the basis on which Kariyawasam made such a statement.
