UNP urges EC not to register any party that will harm its identity

Nissanka Nanayakkara

The United National Party (UNP) has urged the Election Commission not to recognize any party that will harm its identity. UNP has opposed the registration of a new political party named Samagi Jathika Balawegaya.

The Legal Secretary of the UNP President’s Counsel Nissanka Nanayakkara has made this request in a letter written to the Charmin of the national Election Commission Mahinda Deshapriya.

His letter pointed out that when translated into English, the Samagi Jathika Balawegaya reads as United National Power which can be abbreviated to ‘UNP’, same as the abbreviation for United National Party. In the event such a party is registered it would bear a similarity to the already registered UNP and requests the Election Commission to refrain from recognizing the new party.
