* Provincial Councilor of Sri Lanka's main opposition not to support party over nomination list crisis
Wed, Feb 12, 2014, 01:00 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 12, Colombo: Central Provincial Councilor of Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP), Azath Salley says he will not support the party in the future due to the controversy over the party's nominations lists for the forthcoming provincial council elections.

Salley told a news conference today that he has decided not to support the UNP after seeing the party's candidate lists for the Western and Southern Provincial council elections.

Explaining that the party had not nominated candidates who could win at elections, Salley said he could no longer support a party that is continuously defeated.

He noted that the UNP has purposely chosen to field candidates who would not be able to win at elections.

UNP nominations lists for the forthcoming provincial council elections caused much controversy with two senior party members MP Ravi Karunanayaka and former MP Vajira Abeywardena resigning from the nominations committee in protest and MP Palitha Thewarapperuma verbally abusing the party leader.
