The inaugural event of the new political party Jathika Nidahas Peramuna (JNP), formed by dissident parliamentarians of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) led by Wimal Weerawanse, is to be held in Colombo Wednesday, May 14, at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH), party sources in Colombo told the media. The symbol of the new party is "Crown" and its color "Gold."

Late leader Rohana Wijeweera inaugurated the JVP on May 14, forty three years ago in 1965.

Nandana Gunatilake who is also a dissident JVP parliamentarian Monday handed over the application seeking registration for the new party to the Commissioner of Elections.

Gunatilake is the general secretary of the new political party.

Meanwhile, the general secretary of the JVP, Tilvin Silva, said his party would take stern steps against dissident parliamentarians who form the new party.

JVP senior parliamentarian Anura Kumara Dissanayake said that there is no need for a new political party in the current political situation.
