Elections Commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya today said according to the document submitted to him, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa was still the Chairman of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) and the United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA). Addressing media personnel at the Elections Secretariat, Deshapriya said the document, sent in the form of a letter to him by the SLFP some 10 days ago, also states that Anura Priyadarshana Yapa is the SLFP General Secretary.

“I have read in the papers that there has been a change in these posts. However, no one has informed me officially. As such, Mahinda Rajapaksa continues to be SLFP chairman according to the information with us,” he stressed.

However, the elections commissioner said he expected the SLFP to officially convey the decision to him about a change in the party’s posts.
