Wed, May 9, 2018, 11:26 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

May 09, Colombo: The Sri Lanka Freedom Party parliamentarians who were appointed by President Maithripala Sirisena through the national list after they were defeated at the general election in 2015 and are sitting in the opposition, have been asked to resign from their MP posts.

Attorney Rajika Kodituwakku, an Executive Member of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party Young Professional's Association (SLFPYPA) and President's Coordinating Secretary said the four national list MPs who left the SLFP and withdrew from the government should hand over their posts to the President and resign.

Kodituwakku said, the President appointed Dilan Perera, SB Dissanayake, Lakshman Yapa Abeywardena and Thilanga Sumathipala, who were defeated in the General Election in 2015, on the belief that they would work according to his ideology and if they cannot be with the President's ideology, they should resign and hand over their slots to the President.

Then the President will be able to appoint a group of people who respect the President's ideology, Kodituwakku said addressing a media briefing held today (09) at the SLFP headquarters.

Attorney Kodituwakku pointed out that when MP Dayasiri Jayasekara left the United National Party (UNP) he resigned from his MP post setting an example.
