Dayasiri likely to be appointed as SLFP General Secretary

Former Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekera is likely to be appointed as the new General Secretary of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP).

Jayasekera was among the group of 16 SLFP members who quit the Government and sat with the opposition in Parliament.

While most members of the group of 16 have been attending party meetings of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) headed by former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, Jayasekera has been a notable absentee at some of those meetings.

The SLFP made several changes to key positions in the party last month including by appointing an acting General Secretary.

Professor Rohana Lakshman Piyadasa was appointed as the acting General Secretary of the party while former General Secretary Duminda Dissanayake was appointed as the SLFP’s National Organiser.
