Weligama UC Chairman’s UNP membership suspended

The United National Party (UNP) suspended the membership of Weligama Urban Council Chairman Rehan Jayawickreme, UNP General Secretary Akila Viraj Kariyawasam said.

Kariyawasam said that the UC Chairman’s membership was cancelled as he criticised the party’s leadership by issuing letters to the media.

The Minister added that although the Chairman pledged to refrain from violating the disciplinary code when he was summoned to conduct a disciplinary inquiry, he had repeated the offence again which led to the suspension of the membership.
