The UNP membership of UNP Assistant General Secretary Lakshman Seneviratna and MP Earl Gunasekera has been cancelled, UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe told reporters a short while ago.

Seniviratna and Gunasekera were among six UNP members who crossed over to the government after supporting the 18th Amendment to the constitution. Wickremesinghe said that the UNP disciplinary committee will look into the conduct of the remaining UNP MPs who joined the government. 

Wickremesinghe also said that party reforms are underway and cannot be completed in a day. The UNP leader noted that it will take time for the reforms process to be completed and dismissed allegations that the reforms proposals were being sidelined.

He said that young UNP MPs will be given key roles under the reforms. (Daily Mirror online)

    suwimal Tuesday, 14 September 2010 06:37 AM

    It might take perhaps till the next presidential elections!

    mwta Tuesday, 14 September 2010 06:41 AM

    This is another "time buying" tactic adopted by RW.
    He has become a failure. Good decision by the 25 UNP MPs. I think even Karu and Ravi k should be independent MPs.

    Sajith should be the leader.

    Sri Lankan Tuesday, 14 September 2010 06:41 AM

    It will take 6 more years.

    rasika Tuesday, 14 September 2010 06:46 AM

    Party reforms are underway and can be completed withing next 25 years

    lankaman Tuesday, 14 September 2010 06:52 AM

    I don't know about earl, but lakshman seneviratne has to be shown the door. of all UNP traitors, he was the worst kind. during war he was an ardent supporter of SF and then betrayed him in the most treacherous manner for a helicopter joyride.

    Yehiya-Doha Tuesday, 14 September 2010 06:59 AM

    What about your leadership?

    Senior Citizen Tuesday, 14 September 2010 07:00 AM

    But they will go to Courts and sit with govt like all others before them. Mockery of justice to the people. These are the things that the Constitution must address to protect voters rights as they were voted in by UNP voters who have been let down by these unscrupulous rascals.

    pusa Tuesday, 14 September 2010 07:03 AM

    Hope that by the time the reforms are completed, there will be some members with RW to UNP to carry forward.

    Ranil Tuesday, 14 September 2010 07:05 AM

    Ranil do not talk about young MPs man. You got to go. DM hope you will be impartial and publish these comments or else we will not buy the DM and ST. We are fed up with Wijeya Newspapers supporting Ranil's selfish personal agenda.

    Man Tuesday, 14 September 2010 07:07 AM

    Enough is enough. Kick this mut Ranil out of UNP today.

    Appuhamy Tuesday, 14 September 2010 07:08 AM

    Jaya Weewa...

    JEM D Tuesday, 14 September 2010 07:08 AM

    Ultimately Ranil is the winner. Everyone else have shouted in vain.

    If majority of members claim ownership of the party's legality then the court will have to decide whom to entrust the party to. There is no party without members.

    Siri Tuesday, 14 September 2010 07:10 AM

    The Last dance of Ranil........

    Amerasinghe Tuesday, 14 September 2010 07:12 AM

    I hope the 25 MP's will not be fooled by this... this is a yet another trick from Mr. Podi Tricks.

    SIt independently. remove this man from oppotision leader post. its a service to the nation.

    Citizan Tuesday, 14 September 2010 07:12 AM

    I thought they already left from the party. Stupidity at its peak

    Razi Tuesday, 14 September 2010 07:13 AM

    Dear Mr. Dayasiry... Ranilge ugulata ahuwenda epa..he is trying to get time..and will change the scene later...sit independently and select a new opposition leader

    Gayan Samarasekara Tuesday, 14 September 2010 07:18 AM

    Well done sir. This is the language they can understand. Real UNP supporters always need your tactical leadership. We value it. Drive the country to the right direction. We are strongly behind you... People who cry for a change in leadership have no personalty in building the country. The leadership is NOT mouth. It is the brain, and the democratic values.

    dutugamunu Tuesday, 14 September 2010 07:28 AM

    time to go home

    chami Tuesday, 14 September 2010 01:08 PM

    Dear Ranil your time is long gone, please step down and let the new generation leaders to build a strong oppssition.

    Rajitha Tuesday, 14 September 2010 07:30 AM

    Disciplinary action needs to be taken against Ranil wickramasinghe for breaching the basic principles of democracy by refusing to leave the party leadership amidst all the protests

    anjeewa Tuesday, 14 September 2010 07:30 AM

    Your "Buying time" tactic is seems not working this time.
    Your days are numbered Mr.Op (unable) Leader

    Haafi Tuesday, 14 September 2010 07:34 AM

    It's Ranil who should be booted out of UNP for the party to survive. Otherwise , UNP is doomed.

    Jeevan Tuesday, 14 September 2010 07:40 AM

    We can't make heads or tails of your actions. It is high time to wake away not only from the party leadership, but also from the entire politics. Let those two lousy frogs to be on the president lap and one day he or the people will throw them away to the dustbin of the political history.

    G Sunil Tuesday, 14 September 2010 08:00 AM

    PPPPPPPPPPPP Ranil time to leave now........

    MR Tuesday, 14 September 2010 08:05 AM

    Ranil is the best opposition leader that i ever seen.

    Lam Tuesday, 14 September 2010 08:08 AM

    any one think about changing ranil should know there is no one to challenge the H.E. MR in the party. if SF could not do this during the war mentality time period (could not defeat the H.E. MR) do you think any one do it? Sajith is a peanut for the H.E. MR and his Bros

    P.Neil Tuesday, 14 September 2010 08:11 AM

    Ranil may not be the best leader, but Sajith??? If not Ranil, Karu should be the leader. Sajith does not have the depth to perform the duties of an opposition leader.

    senarath Tuesday, 14 September 2010 08:11 AM

    No No No What reforms. Everybody needs leadership change. Please do not further ruin the party. You cant do politics in Sri lanka. But we respect you.

    Chandana Tuesday, 14 September 2010 08:20 AM

    That's all he can do properly "cancel memeberships".

    Siri Tuesday, 14 September 2010 08:20 AM

    Yes all UNP supporters are now for a leadership change other than Ranil, Mali, Tissa, Ravi, Sagala.

    noonas Tuesday, 14 September 2010 03:02 PM

    Ranil step down from leadership and be in the party and serve the nation with others like Hon Dudly Senanayake.

    junior citizen Tuesday, 14 September 2010 08:54 AM

    But we voted them to rule the nation .Not to go and sit in the opposition

    Rajitha Tuesday, 14 September 2010 08:55 AM

    He surely know the art of "buying time"

    Kosala Tuesday, 14 September 2010 08:57 AM

    RW can buy time and the UNP MP's will continue the same way they have no choice

    Ibnu Batuta Tuesday, 14 September 2010 09:52 AM

    The CRACK is too deep. No patch-up work will solve the problem.

    lanka silva Tuesday, 14 September 2010 10:46 AM

    When will Mr Ranil realize that people are fed up of his leadership.
