Prof Warnapala, who held the Cabinet Minister portfolio of Higher Education, has been an active member of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party, the main coalition partner of the UPFA, since his university days. In the 1980 he was appointed to the SLFP Central Committee by former Prime Minister Sirimavo Bandaranaike.
