Mahinda, others lost their seats too? Featured

Mahinda Rajapaksa and other MPs, who had obtained membership of the SLPP, lost their parliamentary seats too, following the Supreme Court ruling that the dissolution of parliament was illegal, says vice president of the SLFP Piyasena Gamage.

According to Gamage, the SLFP constitution says those obtaining membership of another party loses their all party positions.

Therefore, Rajapaksa and others cannot function as MPs any longer, he says.

Gamage says the general secretaries of the SLFP and the UPFA should notify the secretary general of parliament and the election commission about this.

If not, the two general secretaries will be taken to courts, he warns.
