Party actions won't affect my MP seat - Rathana Thero 

Parliamentarian Ven. Athuraliye Ratna Thero states that the actions of the 'Ape Janabala Party' will have no effect on his parliamentary seat.

The Thero points out that although he had allied with the 'Ape Janabala Party' for the general election, he is not a party member.

Therefore, the party is unable to call for a disciplinary inquiry against me, he adds.

Yesterday (16), the 'Ape Janabala Party' announced they have informed the Election Commission that Ven. Rathana Thero has been removed from the party.

The Thero has also been informed that his party membership is revoked.

Meanwhile, reports say that sections against Rathana Thero are attempting to place Ven. GalagodaAththe Gnanasasra Thera to the former's MP seat.
