SLMC politburo rejects dissident parliamentarians' appeals

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 16 June 2004, 17:36 GMT]
The politburo of the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) decided not to readmit the two dissident parliamentarians Messrs Risard Badiudin and Najeeb Abdul Majeed. SLMC politburo, which met Tuesday night, decided to reject their appeal to rejoin the party, party sources said.

The SLMC politburo earlier sacked three dissident parliamentarians Messrs Risard Badiudin (Vanni electoral district), Najeeb Abdul Majeed (Trincomalee electoral district) and Mr. Hussain Baila (national list) and leading activist of Mr.Inamullah few weeks ago for contravening party discipline and working against the leadership of the party, sources said.

Two dissident parliamentarians thereafter sent their appeals to the party high command to lift the expulsion and to readmit them in the party. However majority of the politburo were not in favour of lifting the expulsion, sources said.

Meanwhile Mr. Risard Badiudin and Mr. Najeeb Abdul Majeed are expected to go before courts challenging the expulsion from the SLMC, sources close to them said.
