Since the President of Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna, Prof. GL Peiris, is currently working as an opposition member of parliament, it has been suggested that a new president should be appointed. The ministers who submitted the proposal have said that a person who continuously intervenes in the party’s affairs should act as the chairman.
Accordingly, it has been suggested that GL Peiris should be removed, a professor should be appointed for the vacancy, and that Ranjith Bandara, Member of Parliament, is suitable.
Meanwhile, it has been suggested that he should be given the position of Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Public Enterprises, which is currently vacant. Professor Charitha Herath was the chairman of the Committee on Public Enterprises and he is currently in opposition with the GL group.
