Tiran still with Fonseka

Despite reports circulating last week that Tiran Alles had resigned as the secretary of the Democratic Party, the party leader Sarath Fonseka told reporters today that Alles was still his secretary.

Speaking to reporters outside court, Fonseka said that he did not wish to respond to media reports regarding Alles resigning from his post in the party.

However he said if Alles had resigned then the Elections Commissioner would have been informed by now.

Last week there were reports that Alles had resigned from the Democratic Party led by Fonseka but was still a member of the Democratic National Alliance.

There was also speculation that Alles was to resign and take up a Ministerial post in the government. (Colombo Gazette)
