Court issues interim order against SLFP’s decision on MP Jayasekara

July 02, Colombo (LNW): The Colombo District Court has issued a temporary injunction against the Sri Lanka Freedom Party’s (SLFP) decision to expel MP Dayasiri Jayasekara from party membership and his role as General Secretary.

Jayasekara, formerly the SLFP’s General Secretary, filed a complaint challenging the party’s decision to remove him from his positions.

The court action follows a letter from the party’s then chairman, Maithripala Sirisena, informing Jayasekara of an impending disciplinary inquiry and requesting his response.

On September 5, 2023, MP Dayasiri Jayasekara was summarily expelled from the SLFP and stripped of his role as General Secretary.

In response, former President Maithripala Sirisena clarified that Jayasekara’s membership was temporarily suspended pending further disciplinary proceedings.

Former President Sirisena expressed readiness for Jayasekara to remain a party member or assume any other position within the party, except that of SLFP General Secretary.
