General Secretary of the United National Party (UNP) Akila Viraj Kariyawasam says letters have been directed to party members who signed nomination papers for the forthcoming General from other political parties, demanding them to show cause for their conduct.
Kariyawasam mentioned this releasing a statement on suspending the membership of UNP members who have violated the party’s constitution.
None of the UNP members who signed nomination papers for the impending election from other political parties has sought the written permission of the Working Committee, Kariyawasam pointed out.
Stressing that this is a clear violation of the party’s constitution, Kariyawasam says the leadership of the UNP hence decided to take action against the members who have done so.
UNP General Secretary further stated that the explanations and appeals of such members pertaining to the matter will be taken up at the upcoming meeting of the Working Committee and necessary actions will be determined.
