EC receives requested to cancel AJBP seat

The Sri Lanka Ramanna Maha Nikaya has requested the Elections Commission to immediately abolish the National List Parliamentary seat obtained by Ape Jana Bala Pakshaya (AJBP).

Ven. Omalpe Sobhitha Thero stated that he made this request to the Elections Commission on behalf of the Ramanna Maha Nikaya in view of the disrepute being caused to the Buddha Sasana as several monks are fighting for the position.

However, no one has been appointed to the post so far and it is reported that this is due to the crisis situation within the party
