Fonseka took oaths in front of Speaker Karu Jayasuriya.
The United National Party (UNP) yesterday unanimously agreed to give Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka the vacant UNP National List seat in Parliament.
The decision was taken when the UNP Working Committee met last evening to decide on the National List seat left vacant following the demise of M.K.D.S. Gunawardena.
Fonseka’s Democratic Party and the UNP reached an agreement last week to work together. (Colombo Gazette)
