Councilor and Chief Government Whip of the North Western Provincial Council Johann Fernando, son of former minister Johnston Fernando, has been removed from his post by the cabinet of the Council yesterday.

He was removed from his post after he failed to attend the 2017 budget debate. The Councilor had not been present for all four days of the budget.

North Western Province Chief Minister Dharmasiri Dassanayake said President Maitripala Sirisena had been informed of the decision.

 Councilor Bandara Rajapaksa was appointed as the new Chief government whip. (Pushpakumara Jayaratna)
