He told a news briefing today that Mahinda Rajapaksa quitting SLFP was a matter of concern.
“According to the SLFP Constitution, if an SLFP member obtained membership of another party, his or her party membership would be annulled,” he said.
“We don’t want to sabotage the talks with SLPP because we have almost come to the final rounds. I think we could conclude the talks before the nominations of the presidential election are handed over,” Amaraweera added.
He said it was baffling as to why Rajapaksa obtained SLFP membership while he was bearing membership of SLPP and becoming one of its senior advisors.
