Information has been received through political sources that the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) membership of 7 parliamentarians may be revoked on the grounds that they violated the party constitution.

According to the source, the 7 MPs in question are Gampaha District’s MPs Prasanna Ranatunga and Prasanna Ranaweera, Puttalam District’s MP Sanath Nishantha, Ratnapura District’s MP Pavithradevi Wanniarachchi, Kandy District’s MPs Lohan Ratwatte and Dilum Amunugama, and Kalutara District’s MP Rohitha Abeygunawardena.

Under the 19th Amendment to the Constitution of Sri Lanka, if the 7 parliamentarians are removed from their party, they will by default also lose their MP statuses.
