Two senior UNP frontliners, both former ministers, are on the mat over the bungled Colombo Municipal Council nominations list, Sirikotha sources said. They are likely to resign from the party positions they hold.
A Sirikotha source said yesterday (23) these two persons had worked against the UNP`s candidate during the last Presidential election campaign and were generally believed to have been behind the problem in the list of candidates for the CMC polls rejected by the Elections Commissioner`s Office.
Senior party members want both of them relieved of the responsibilities as party organizers, The UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe has been briefed about the matter by a number of party seniors, Sirikotha sources said.|
Sources also said it was highly likely they would resign from their party positions within the next few days.
