Defeated UNP Galle district candidate and former Member of Parliament Vajira Abeywardena says he will decide his next course of action in a weeks time. There was speculation he might leave the UNP if he is not given a national list slot from the party.

When contacted by Daily Mirror online and asked if he will quit the UNP and join the government if he is not given a national list slot by the party to enter parliament, the former UNP MP said he will not comment on it to the media and his decision will be known in a week’s time.

It is believed that Abeywardena has demanded for a national list slot from his party after he was defeated at the General Elections held recently. (Daily Mirror online)

    As a matter of principle a person rejected by the people should not be brought to the Parliament through the national list whether UNF or UPFA.
    They too should hav a self respect not ask for such appointments!!!!

    If the government sincerely wishes to develop the country people of this calibre should be left out as they are of no use and they will not be productive.

    You were planning to cross anyway so that's why the wise UNPrs in Galle did not elect you. Another dubious character!

    Now that you have been rejected by the people get lost. National List is for Professionals and minorities. The country cannot be run solely by people without education and professional experience.

    Please accept the verdict of people. Please retire from politics and also tell your leader to think about this.
