Sajith sacks National List MP Diana Gamage

The Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) led by Sajith Premadasa, has sacked National List MP Diana Gamage.

In November last year the party had suspended her membership after she voted in favour of the 20th Amendment to the Constitution.

SJB General-Secretary Ranjith Madduma Bandara said that the disciplinary committee of the SJB has now decided to remove her from the party.

In a letter addressed to Gamage last November, Party Leader Sajith Premadasa noted the MP’s failure to comply with the SJB’s common decision to vote against the 20th Amendment to the Constitution.

The party had reached a consensus to vote against the Amendment, which MP Gamage had defied by voting in favour, MP Sajith Premadasa had highlighted.

The actions of MP Gamage had been deemed a violation of the Samagi Jana Balawegaya party’s constitution. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Her job was to make sure Sajith play his role as controlled opposition for Mahinda and keep SJB on a leash. If they try to be funny they won’t have any party to contest under.

    And people still can’t see Sajith is in Mahindas pocket from the get go!

    All engineered by Dayan Jayatillake, who is whispering in Sajiths ear while working for the Rajapaksas.

    He was used to split to opposition to help them achieve their 2/3 majority.

    If sajith had any decency he would have allowed Karu Jayasuriya contest at the presidential elections.

    The fact that he blocked Karu shows his greed to hijack the UNP and will never have the full support of the UNP voters ever again in the future.
