Hirunika Premachandra has been appointed as the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) Organizer for Colombo Central by President Mahinda Rajapaksa today, sources told Ada Derana.

Reliable sources also say that Hirunika, the daughter of slain former MP and Presidential Advisor Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra, is to contest the upcoming Provincial Council election.

She reportedly met with President Mahinda Rajapaksa this morning and is expected to officially accept the letter of appointment on Monday (13).

Hirunika will contest for the Western Provincial Council under the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA).

Her father, former UPFA MP and Presidential Advisor on trade unions Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra, was killed in a shooting incident also involving UPFA MP Duminda Silva in Kolonnawa on Election Day - October 08, 2011.

Hirunika joined active politics in February 2012 through the Sri Lanka Mahajana Party.
