Issuing a joint statement, the five parties point out that they were not informed about the removal of Minister Mahinda Amaraweera from that position or the appointment of a new general secretary.

The parties said they were surprised when they saw the news in the media about the removal of Mr. Mahinda Amaraweera from the post.
