Wimal Weerawansa loses another live-wire

A prominent personality in the party of Minister of Housing, Construction, Engineering and Public Utilities Wimal Weerawansa, has quit and joined Common Opposition Presidential candidate Maithripala Sirisena.
Attorney at Law Mahesh Madawela today (December 18) quit as the Akmeemana chief organiser of the Jathika Nidahas Perumana headed by Weerawansa and pledged his support for Maithripala Sirisena in Habaraduwa in the Galle district.
