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)
