Thu, Aug 7, 2014, 12:33 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Aug 06, Colombo: General Secretary of Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) Tissa Attanayake said today that former Provincial Councilors Shiral Lakthilaka and Maithri Gunarathna who were expelled from the party can apply to get the membership of the party again.

These two leading UNP activists have been removed from the party on disciplinary grounds and they were not granted party nomination to contest the past Provincial Council elections of Western and Southern Provinces.

Addressing a press conference held in Colombo today, the UNP General Secretary said that party has no objection for all sacked members to regain their membership.

However, the party needs to take a policy decision on the matter and the party can consider the appeals from the politicians who have been removed from the party, the UNP secretary said.

He also said that the party had focused to unite all the activists who have been removed from the party with the UNP again.

The main opposition is attempting to strengthen the party to face the ruling coalition at upcoming elections
