Businessman Dhammika Perera’s name was submitted to the National Election Commission to fill the vacant National List seat of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) in Parliament.
It is reported that Dhammika Perera has decided to resign from the board memberships of all his companies.
Reportedly, Perera has officially submitted his consent to accept a National List Membership of Parliament from the SLPP.
