* Disciplinary action against unruly lawmaker of Sri Lanka opposition party on 17th
Wed, Feb 12, 2014, 10:53 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 12, Colombo: The Leadership Council of Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) says that the recommendations on the actions needed to be taken against the party's unruly lawmaker will be submitted to the Working Committee on February 17th.

The Kalutara district MP Palitha Thewarapperuma is accused of behaving violently and attempting to physically assault the party leader Ranil Wickremasinghe at the UNP parliamentary group meeting last week.

Following the outburst, the party temporarily suspended the MP's party membership.

Confidential party sources say that the MP will have to undergo stern disciplinary action and he will have to apologize in public to avoid expelling from the party.

Thewarapperuma during the UNP parliamentary group meeting had become angry at the party leader over his decision to field a certain individual under the UNP banner at the forthcoming Provincial Council election.

He has charged that the party leader's unilateral decisions would ruin the party at the elections.
