Dec 19, Colombo: The Leadership Council of Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) has decided to restart the disciplinary actions against 29 members including those representing Provincial Councils and local governments.
The disciplinary probes are to be instituted against several electoral organizers as well.
UNP Leadership Council had earlier decided to grant a general amnesty to these representatives. However, the party leaders have decided to restart the disciplinary probes since those representatives have continued to violate party discipline.
UNP Working Committee has assigned the Leadership Council to conduct the disciplinary probes and to report it immediately, party sources said.
Earlier the working committee pardoned two UNP MPs, Palitha Range Bandara and Ashok Abeysinghe dropping the disciplinary probes against them and reinstated them in the electoral organizer positions they held previously.
