Ex President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to enter Parliament as a National List MP?
Former President Gotabaya Rajapaksa who was set to return to Sri Lanka next week is set to arrive in Parliament as a national list MP of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP), political sources disclosed.
The former Sri Lankan President is believed to be given a national list seat as an assurance of his diplomacy to continue his legal affairs and foreign travels without being subjugated to any security threats.
Accordingly, SLPP National List MP Dr. Seetha Arambepola would be ready to resign from his parliament membership offering her seat to the ex President, sources further revealed.
As of now, both Mahinda Rajapaksa and Maithripala Sirisena, who happen to be former Presidents of Sri Lanka, represent Parliament.
