Court rejects request for injunction on suspension of UNP membership

The request to issue an injunction order on the United National Party’s (UNP) decision to suspend 102 members from the party, was rejected by the Colombo District Court today.

General Secretary of the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) Ranjith Madduma Bandara had put forward the request for an injunction order.

In May 2020, the UNP working Committee decided to suspend the membership of some party members who had violated the party’s constitution.

General Secretary of the UNP Akila Viraj Kariyawasam said the party had decided to suspend the membership of members who had sought nominations from other political parties for the upcoming General Election.

He said members who had submitted nominations from the Samagi Jana Balawegaya for the election had not obtained prior approval from the UNP Working Committee, thus violating the party’s constitution.

As a result, on 29 May, the UNP Working Committee decided to suspend the membership of 102 party members who had sought nominations from the Samagi Jana Balawegaya.

However, the Samagi Jana Balawegaya has said it obtained the approval of the UNP Working Committee to form the new alliance.
