Colombo, April 21 (Daily Mirror)- Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe was appointed as the Acting Chairman of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) by the Maithripala Sirisena faction.

The appointment was made during an executive committee meeting held at a hotel in Kotte with the participation of former President Maithripala Sirisena.

Minister of Ports, Aviation and Shipping Nimal Siripala de Silva was earlier appointed as Acting Chairman of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) at a SLFP politburo meeting under the chairmanship of former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga.

The Colombo District Court issued an interim injunction, barring former President Maithripala Sirisena from functioning as SLFP Chairman.

    Backstabbing is the Norm in SLPF Sunday, 21 April 2024 05:05 PM

    Correct. Backstabbing their own people and claiming to be a Buddhist practicing party. They are full of shxx and hope the people can see how these so called politicians of low caliber were nominated over the years and unable to lift SL up till today. Majority of voters are educated and know what’s right and wrong. Hope by seeing the behaviour and backstabbing going on in SLPF, all should be bumped off.

    Responsible for the Economic Meltdown Sunday, 21 April 2024 10:40 PM

    Absolutely- a Mickey Mouse party with bunch of uneducated hooligans. Most of these idiots are responsible for the economic disaster in 2022 due to mismanagement and corruption over the years of their so called leadership. Time to close up this party and move over for a new younger professional team to run the country.

    Lol. WR was not a member of slfp and was a slpp politician. So technically his appointment is not legal. Siripala was a slfp member in the slpp coalition. Anyway it is good these frogs are fighting with each other. Lets put more fuel to it.

    Close Up This Old Miserable Party Sunday, 21 April 2024 03:00 PM

    Close up this Old Fool’s Party. They are part of the gang which bankrupted the country and still living the lavish lifestyle. Vote wisely and throw them out.

    Dealdasa need to resign from his Justice Ministry post. He can no longer hold that post in good conscience given the serious litigation involving a role he has now assumed.

    Don't worry. Another good circus actor. Samasulting expert.

    SLPP is breaking into pieces all SLPP members were earlier in the SLFP , this is good time to loyal SLFP supporters in the SLPP to rejoin the SLFP regroup and contest the presidential elections, with this move SLFP grassroot level supporters can support the SLFP Presidential candidate. I think is a good move.

    Wijedasa attended press briefing surrounded by Uditha Lokubandara (son of former UNPer WJM Likubandara) and Daham Sirisena (son of Maithreepala). Who are these guys? What are their qualification to be the politicians of this country. Both Lokubandara and Maithreepala were corrupted and disgraceful politician who took the country to the brink.

    Daham Sirisena doesn't know whether he is coming or going or WHY HE IS THERE!!!??? 4 or 5 Years ago he was at the Royal Thomian Match, award ceremony too, on the stage, whereas as everybody knows, he isn't a Royalist or Thomian to attend the ceremony let alone be on the stage!? That guy CRREPS into wherever, Maithri Sorry Sena, may have been accommodated due to his position and not by the welcome of PUBLIC!!!??? Could only remember 2 words - Insolence and Idiotic - whether it applies, is beyond me!!!??? Shame he was educated at POLLONNARUWA, BY A "NAMESAKE SCHOOL", IMPROPERLY!!!??? "CHIP OF THE OLD BLOCK"!!?? What else??? ‘JOCA’ of the PACK’!!??

    Wijedasa is good frog.SLFP is a dead party. We do not care who gets appointed. Wijedasa can celebrate at home. Tell the fellow to come to raid and ask for votes. He can see where he stands

    All these guys are making a mockery of democracy Sunday, 21 April 2024 08:50 PM

    The cunning Gamarala is taking a new role. When he found that SLFP head quarters is out of bounds for him, he stealthily appointed Wijedasa as actg. chairman of SLFP. The joke is, Maithri is a nobody and has no power to appoint Wijedasa in the first place. Maithri is testing the waters.

    So now SLFP has two acting presidents, who are actually ministers of Ranil. lol Ranil's destroying every single party and people who has harassed him for decades.

    Wera Monday, 22 April 2024 06:43 AM

    He gets appointed by the Defunct branch headed by the idiot brigade. How funny. Has he got any self respect.

    Sambo Monday, 22 April 2024 08:07 AM

    Another stooge for the asking.

    Rana Monday, 22 April 2024 08:45 AM
