The seat organizers of the Samagi Jana Balavega are requesting Harin Fernando to join the United National Party at least now without remaining in the National List Member of the Samagi Jana Balavega.
Harin Fernando was elected to parliament in the last general election representing the national list of Samagi Jana Balavegaya and currently, he is working as a minister in the government of Ranil Wickramasinghe.
Since the post of UNP National List MP is vacant after Ranil Wickramasinghe became the President, the SJB Organizers point out that Harin Fernando can resign from the post of SJB MP and come to Parliament from the UNP National List.
The organizers of the SJB point out that there is no legal obstacle for Harin Fernando to continue to hold the position of SJB MP, but he has no moral right to do so.
It has now been learned that it has been proposed to appoint Ruwan Wijewardena for the post of UNP National List Member of Parliament and since it was not Ruwan Wijewardena but Harin Fernando who did the highest work for the formation of Ranil Wickramasinghe’s government, the National List Member of Samagi Jana Balavega was given back to the same party. SJB organizers also say that Harin Fernando should arrange to come to parliament from the national list.
