Champika decides to sit as an independent MP in Parliament

Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MP Champika Ranawaka says he has decided to sit as an independent MP in Parliament from today.

He informed Parliament that he had informed SJB leader Sajith Premadasa about his decision.

The MP rejected claims that he was to accept a Ministerial post.

Ranawaka said he has no intention of accepting any Ministerial post.

The MP said that the decision to sit as an independent MP in Parliament was in line with his policy and thinking and was not owing to any personal issue with anyone.

He also said that the decision to sit as an independent MP falls in line with the agreement his party reached with the SJB. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Ranawaka is a man with a personal agenda. He moves from branch to branch what for? His eyes are on the top post and until such time he keeps floating from party to party. Do you think the goal of these politicians are really to serve the people and the country?

  2. “When you see a crime (sin) being committed, try to stop it with your hand; If could not do it, try to stop it with your words (protest); If you cannot do even that, hate that action within your heart. This is the lowest level of you human conscience. After some time, you may end up enjoying it. – In simple terms you are not worth living on this earth.

  3. People with brains are realizing you can’t work in the SJB and are forced to leave one by one.

    Finally only the gangsters and black money holders will remain.

    The SJB is still full of gangsters and black money holders with links to the Rajapaksas and Thirukumar Nadesan. Sajith has SJB members who are married into the Rajapaksas Lackeys families close to him even his wife Jalani Premadasa is good friends with Nirupama Rajapaksa and everyone knows this.

    If they throw out the crooks they will lose all their organizers on the ground and half of their parliamentarians. If they aren’t willing to clean up they should not contest at the next elections.

    Harin Fernando and Manusha Nanayakkara are the only intelligent politicians now joined by Champika Ranawaka who can get votes who chose to leave SJB because they can see the train wreck it is about to turn into.

    Only Colombo elites with black money or got their hands dirty with the Rajapaksas and those running illegal operations are running behind SJB and this is becoming crystal clear with every passing day.

    They won’t allow SJB to go after the stolen monies. Now you know who is protecting the Rajapaksas and their proxies holding their money…
