Wed, Feb 5, 2014, 08:47 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 05, Colombo: Two senior members of Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) have resigned from the party's nomination committee over disputes in finalizing nomination lists for the forthcoming Western and Southern Provincial Council elections.

UNP Colombo District parliamentarian Ravi Karunanayaka and former UNP Galle District parliamentarian Vajira Abeywardena have resigned from the party's nomination committee today.

Karunanayaka and Abeywardena have resigned after the party leadership has overruled their objections over granting nominations to several individuals in the Colombo and Galle Districts.

UNP sources said the party leadership was informed of their decision to resign from the nomination committee.

The members appointed to the UNP's nomination committee were Karu Jayasuriya, Tissa Attanayake, Ravi Karunanayaka, Kabir Hashim, Lakshman Kiriella, Mangala Samaraweera and Vajira Abeywardena.
