CWC National List MP resigns

Ceylon Workers Congress lawmaker, K. Marimuttu, resigned yesterday from Parliament, said Dhammika Kitulegoda, secretary general of Parliament.

Marimuttu, who was appointed from the CWC national list, will be replaced in the House by K. Yogarajan, a CWC Colombo district member of the former Parliament who lost the last general election.

Political sources said that Marimuttu is likely to take position as Sri Lanka’s ambassador to Jordan. He was recently approved for the job by the high posts committee. (NW)
