SLFP MPs who accept ministerial portfolios to be removed from party: Sirisena

Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) MPs who accept ministerial portfolios will be removed from the party immediately, says SLFP Chairman and Former President Maithripala Sirisena.

This was made known via a media release from the SLFP today (01).

Sirisena had further reiterated that the SLFP Central Committee had only decided to support the positive actions taken by the government while remaining in the opposition and that as a collective decision, none of the SLFP MPs were to accept any ministerial portfolios, and if any MP was to accept a portfolio, they would be removed from the party with immediate effect.
