The United National Party (UNP) has decided to remove MP Wasantha Senanayake from the party with immediate effect.
UNP General Secretary Akila Viraj Kariyawasam stated that the UNP decided to strip party membership from Senanayake immediately and later remove him from his ministerial portfolio.
Wasantha Senanayake, great grand son of UNP founder D. S. Senanayake, is the current State Minister of Foreign Affairs in the UNP-led government.
He had recently written a letter to UNP deputy leader and NDF presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa, expressing his concerns with regard to the latter’s election campaign.
Holding a press conference recently, he also demanded answers from Premadasa for questions put forward by him regarding the role certain ministers will play in a future government.
Senanayake has also been visibly absent at the election rallies of Sajith Premadasa.
