SJB to go solo on nominations

5 March 2020 04:29 am - 4     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) yesterday announced the appointment of its nomination board. Commenting on this, former MP Harin Fernando told Daily Mirror the board comprised politicians and lawyers.

Accordingly, he said, the politicians included Mangala Samaraweera, Kabir Hashim, Lakshman Kiriella, Malik Samarawickrama, Ravindra Samaraweera and Thalatha Athukorala.

“The inclusion of Kabir Hashim is a notable feature as he was in the nomination board member list of the UNP. Another surprising inclusion is Mr. Kiriella who is identified as one who wants to contest under the elephant symbol. The nomination board was decided upon to choose suitable candidates if SJB were to go solo in the event the UNP did not agree with its conditions," he said. (Yohan Perera)

    Nice! I was thinking of avoiding voting. Now I need to think again.

    Time to time you all are making conditions. Besides, you have a practice of criticizing Ranil Wickramasingha, your leader implicitly, in public; Sajith too is so. Unlike POHOTTUWA, UNP is not a family party.
