The United National Party (UNP) failed to secure a single seat in the Colombo District at the 2020 General Election.
UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe and Assistant Leader Ravi Karunanayake were knocked out of Parliament in the election after failing to secure enough votes in Colombo.

The SLPP secured 12 seats from Colombo, the SJB 6 and National People’s Power 1.
