MP Wijewickrema switching her allegiance to President Sirisena on Sunday

UPFA Digamadulla MP Sriyani Wijewickrema yesterday evening pledged her support to President Maithripala Sirisena.


MP Wijewickrema, who is a lawyer by profession, was among those elected members who joined the Joint Opposition (JO) following the formation of the UNP-SLFP joint administration.


The JO comprise 55 members, including former President Mahinda Rajapaksa. Last month, JO member Geetha Kumarasinghe lost her seat due to a court ruling.


Altogether 95 were elected and appointed on the UPFA list at the last parliamentary polls in August 2015.
