The Colombo District Court has issued an order preventing the removal of Raja Collure as the chairman of the Communist Party of Sri Lanka. On October 24, the Communist Party announced that Raja Collure was removed from his position as the Chairman of the party with immediate effect. Raja Collure is also the current Governor of the North Western Province. He was recently in the spotlight after claiming that he is considering slashing the November salary of teachers in the province who did not report to duty on October 21 when schools were reopened. The Governor had come under heavy criticism from trade unions and other groups over these comments. In response to the Communist Party’s move, Collure said it does not have any authority to take disciplinary action against him and remove him from the chairmanship of the party over a decision taken by him as a governor.
