No nominations for Duminda, Mervyn, Sajin and Sarana
The nomination boards of the SLFP and the UPFA have agreed not to give nominations to former MPs Duminda Silva, Mervyn Silva, Sajin de Vass Gunawardena and Sarana Gunawardena to contest the forthcoming general Election, political sources said.
A special discussion was held last night, at the residence of a prominent minister, to prepare the final nominations list of the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) and its main constituent party – the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP).
The discussion had dragged on past midnight yesterday while emphasis was mainly given to four points when affording nominations with priority given to ruling out individuals who have been charged with corruption.
Therefore both parties had agreed on not giving nominations to the aforementioned politicians, even before the discussion had commenced.
Meanwhile attention had also been directed towards 10 other ex-Parliamentarians, who have been charged with allegations of corruption.
Hence there is an uncertainty as to whether these individuals will be provided nominations to contest the polls, source told Ada Derana.
The UPFA and SLFP nomination lists prepared so far are expected to reach President Maithripala Sirisena today before the parties come to a final agreement.

Well Done my3
Good decision, but not by MY3, it was by UPFA team. MY3 wasn’t even in that meeting to take credit.
Of all the four photos appearing here in , the DARKEST is that of dr. Mervin. So is his entire life. Of him our famous Alagiyawanna Mukawetithuma said ‘ ……… Napuru dudanange Siyalangahima Visaya. ‘ (in Subashitaya)
He should be shunned from and by the entire Society.
Correct decision, if Mahinda wants to win, he should sack more thugs and drug dealers. Mahinbda, make a new start, main point is you have made mistakes and realised it , the people will forgive you, please dont repeat it.
