UNP General Secretary Akila Viraj Kariyawasam in a letter addressed to Chairman of the Election Commission had requested him to stop the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) from using green as its party colours.

“UNP in its constitution has adopted green as its official colour. This is clearly stated in section 1.2 of the party constitution. However, SJB seemed to be using green as its colour despite adopting that its colour would be blue as per its constitution. This shows that SJB clearly uses green to inflict an adverse effect on UNP. Therefore, we urge you to look into the matter and clear everything,” Mr. Kariyawasam said in its letter dated July 8, 2020.

When inquired by the Daily Mirror, SJB General Secretary Ranjith Maddua Bandara said no party could claim a colour. “What matters to a political party is its symbol, not the colour,” he said. (Yohan Perera)

    Idiot. The green color belongs to all living beings. Not just the UNP. I always had doubts abbot Sri Lanka degrees. This proves it.

    No one could stop any one from using Green Color. A color could be used by any one. Are trying to say that green color was invented by the UNP and you hold a patent over it where no one else could use it without your permission. You are a joke.

    So no party during elections period can display any plants or leaves. All the vegitations has to be covered up. This must be the Height of Absurdity
