All those UNPers who had formed another party will lose the positions they hold in the party once they sign the nomination papers to contest from another party, former UNP MP Vajira Abeywardene said yesterday.  

Mr. Abeywardene told a press conference that this was the position of those who contest this year’s general election from another party as per the UNP constitution.   
“Those who contest from another party will lose all their positions in the UNP as soon as they sign nomination papers from another party,” he said.   

“UNP is silent about this position at the moment. However one should not think that this is a weakness of the UNP. If party members continue to work against the party, UNP will not hesitate to take action against them,” Mr. Abeywardene added.   

Also he said that some give wrong interpretations to the decisions made by the UNP working committee. “UNP General Secretary will explain the correct position on the decisions made by the working committee shortly ,” he said.   

“No UNPer has power to form another political party. However the working committee gave permission to form an alliance in order to safeguard the unity within the party.
