* Sri Lanka's newly formed Frontline Socialist Party splits prematurely
Sat, Apr 21, 2012, 10:34 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 21, Colombo: The newly formed Marxist party, Frontline Socialist Party (FSP), is about to split again, Sri Lanka media reported today.

The party was launched this month by a large group of dissident members of Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP).

However, sources say that another group of party members led by former MP Dimuthu Bandara Abeykoon and former Western Provincial Councillor Waruna Rajapaksa have revolted against the leadership of the party.

They have reportedly raised the issue of the party not being an alternate to the JVP and following the same path as JVP.

The duo and the only MP linked to the party Ajith Kumara were not elected to the Central Committee of the new party.

The FSP gained worldwide publicity recently when its leader-elect, Australian citizen Premakumar Gunaratnam and the women's leader Dimuthu Attygalle were allegedly abducted just before the party's launch and released later.

The party blamed the government for the abductions of Gunaratnam and Attygalle.
