    Please let him learn that UNP has no saloon door just like his last boss always used to say. Here one who goes out is gone out forever.

    Independently incompetent.

    CW Tuesday, 05 May 2015 03:27 PM

    Who appointed him first?

    This shows that govt does not interfere with Judiciary. Judiciary can decide independently and the verdict is not drafted by President like the previous regime.

    Thank You Sir. This is Yahapalanaya. Ranil has to be more law abiding inside his own party. He can not try act like a dictator.

    better late than never .... do everything needed atleast now n send d guy packing ......

    ravisandu Tuesday, 05 May 2015 11:17 AM

    So many lawyers in UNP and no one knows even how to expel a member properly. What a bloody mess.

    lee Tuesday, 05 May 2015 11:22 AM

    This shows the judiciary is independent now.

    Rufus Norton Tuesday, 05 May 2015 03:52 PM

    What he did superseded any process requirements. He became a traitor to the party and condemned the party through the media.

    Clif Tuesday, 05 May 2015 11:23 AM

    at least NOW dont give him nomination and this time he came by chit

    UNPs ĺawyers are quite set of mutts. Firing without an inquiry is illegal for certain.

    Hiran Gunawardena Tuesday, 05 May 2015 11:25 AM

    Good decision. They thought that they.will.get.away with that just like they.appointed CJ illegally. via DM Android App

    Do not take him in to UNP. If he is in, Can not avoid the UNP defeat in the upcoming parliamentary election.

    willowsd Tuesday, 05 May 2015 11:38 AM

    let him resign now

    If Ranil does not know how to expel a party member by following the due process how can he be the PM of Yahapalanaya government????

    Good riddance. Get him out for good, lest he brings his dirty games into play again.

    W.GChandrapala Tuesday, 05 May 2015 04:15 PM

    Law of the devil. Can court explain the correct procedure to the general public how a MP who has crossed over to the government should be expelled

    Cyril n Tuesday, 05 May 2015 11:54 AM

    Justice system working unlike previous time of previous regime. However, Tissa can be an ordinary member of UNPonly.

    Bala Tuesday, 05 May 2015 12:20 PM

    Follow due process and throw him out once and for all time. Why he is trying to get back, god only knows - may be to get election plans and betray again.

    sujith Tuesday, 05 May 2015 04:39 PM

    He is not worth a cent to the UNP or the CountryKick him out any way

    AIA Tuesday, 05 May 2015 12:37 PM

    Another instance of the judiciary functioning independently now. That is what we need to admire and all credit to this government for that.

    The God Father Tuesday, 05 May 2015 12:39 PM

    Does this mean the curse will be back in the party?

    public Tuesday, 05 May 2015 12:55 PM

    Since when did the supreme court have jurisdiction over party membership?

    Fassey Tuesday, 05 May 2015 12:55 PM

    Let Tissa face the election under UNP and he will naturally go out. Giving him to contest under UNP is a loss again to the party, as he will not get UNP votes. Tissa is now on the political fence.

    justin Tuesday, 05 May 2015 01:01 PM

    This is yahapalanaya. If it is previous regime the decision would be different.

    Not like your boss who got the judiciary to give the decisions he wanted.

    Hiran Gunawardena Tuesday, 05 May 2015 01:32 PM

    One thing is clear He will not go back to UNP again. Cos UNP will be at the thick of minority parties after election. Sure RW wont get back door open for PM post again. RW deserved the crown as longest serving opposition leader via DM Android App

    Had such a verdict being given under the previous regime the judge would have being impeached in a kangaroo court.

    Abraham Tuesday, 05 May 2015 01:55 PM

    If he contests from UNP he is most likely to lose the game to his UNP opponent(s).

    Buddhika Lokubandara Tuesday, 05 May 2015 02:47 PM

    Oh God! Is the Supreme court telling me that if a man in my organization, openly goes and joins another organization or party, gives forged documents to establish his bona-fides with the other party and insults all the officer bearers and the council of the party he was serving and is kicked out for his indecency, illegitimate and venomous attitude and for lying, that you cannot sack this traitor from my party or organization.What a travesty.

    chandra Tuesday, 05 May 2015 02:57 PM

    But they know how to prepare report on CB bond selling!!

    Mifras Tuesday, 05 May 2015 03:01 PM

    Ok No problem; Follow proper process now and kick him out

    Nande Tuesday, 05 May 2015 03:05 PM

    What ever it is honest UNP people doesnt want to see him back in the party. via DM Android App
