In response to the privilege issues raised some UNP MPs regarding a directive to their personal security officers barring them from carrying personal weapons tomorrow, Deputy Speaker Chandima Weerakkody said that it was a decision taken by the UNP convention organizing committee.
“UNP MPs and their security officers would be barred from carrying their personal weapons to the party convention and its precincts in Sirikotha tomorrow,” Mr. Weerakkody said adding that “it was a decision taken by the UNP convention organizing committee and was outside the ambit of Parliament.”

Good move, otherwise there would be possible blood bath. Why should they carry arms, after all UNP is a peace loving party and it should remain so.

Shame on Ranil and his cronies. These people should be chased away and a new leadership should take power for the UNP to win back the lost party vote base.
