Parliamentarian Ven. Athuraliye Rathana Thera has been expelled from his party, the Our Power of People Party.

According to the OPPP’s national organizer Dr. Susantha Kodithuwakku, the election commissioner was informed of the expulsion in writing yesterday (15).

Election Commission chief Nimal G. Punchihewa has confirmed receiving the said letter.

A party inquiry has found that the national list MP had acted against the decisions of the party and undermined the public’s trust in the party, said Dr. Kodithuwakku.

Ven. Rathana Thera alleges his expulsion was illegal, and says he will take action against the party over the move.
