SJB appoints office bearers for 2021

The Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) today(25th Jan) appointed new office bearers to the party for the year 2021.

MP Sajith Premadasa remains as the leader of the party, while MP Ranjith Madduma Bandara too retains his position as the General Secretary of the SJB.

Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka was appointed as the Chairman of the Samagi Jana Balawegaya.

MPs S.M. Marikkar and Manusha Nanayakkara have been appointed as the new spokesmen for the party.

MP Harin Fernando has been appointed as the Vice Chairman and Head of Operations for the Samagi Jana Balawegaya.

Given the United National Party’s history of having a senior representative from a minority community among its key office-bearers, the SJB was expected to follow the tradition, given its wider electoral appeal.

Thereby, long-time Sajith Premadasa confidante and SJB’s senior most MP, Imthiaz Bakeer Markar had been expected to be appointed as the SJB Chairman.

The appointments were approved during the Central Committee meeting of the SJB.

Speaking during the meeting, SJB Leader Sajith Premadasa announced that MP Patali Champika Ranawaka has officially joined the Samagi Jana Balawegaya.

MP Premadasa further said Patali Champika Ranawaka will receive a senior position in the party soon.
