The President has no ethical right to select Parliamentarians through the National List, Pivithuru Hela Urumaya Leader Udaya Gammanpila says.


The observation was made at a press conference held in Colombo this afternoon (25).


Gammanpila also severely criticised the manner in which the United People’s Freedom Party’s (UPFA) national list MPs were selected.


“It is not a secret that the UPFA supporters are disappointed about the National List,” he added.


Gammanpila also vowed not to contest under the UPFA ticket with the present leadership at a forthcoming election.


He also charged that the new government is attempting to bring an international investigation on the alleged human rights violations in the guise of a domestic mechanism.
