Former parliamentarian Shantha Bandara stated that the appointment of D.B. Herath to the parliament seat which became vacant with the demise of the Kurunegala District MP Salinda Dissanayake is a violation of the Constitution.

Shantha Bandara obtained the highest preferential votes after the late MP Salinda Dissanayake in the Kurunegala District UPFA list.

However, at the time of the death of MP Salinda Dissanayake, Shantha Bandara was representing parliament as a National List MP and former Provincial Councilor D.B. Herath therefore was the next line to fill the vacancy.

Subsequently, Shantha Bandara resigned from his seat on August 7, stating that he prefers to represent parliament as a MP elected by the peoples vote.

The gazette notification was issued yesterday appointing D.B. Hearth  as MP for the vacant parliamentary seat. Former MP Shantha Bandara told the Hiru news team that he will discuss this matter with the party leadership and take necessary action since the appointment is illegal.
