Feb 03, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), which adopted a new set of policies to steer the party to the future, has also increased the number of members in the party's decision making body, the Central Committee and the politburo.

The JVP's politburo earlier had five members, but it has now been increased to seven.

The new thirty-member Central Committee yesterday appointed JVP MP Sunil Handunnetti and former MP Bimal Ratnayake to the politburo.

The JVP also adopted the party's new policies called, "Our Vision" at yesterday's party convention where the party leadership was handed over to MP Anura Kumara Dissanayake.

According to the JVP the new policies are aimed at consolidating the party's power base in the long term and creating a new "Socialist State" to protect the country from "political, economic and cultural invasions of imperialists".
