Provincial Council election candidate Herath Banda, who contested at the recently concluded Central Provincial Council election under Sarath Fonseka’s Democratic Party, joined the UNP as a member this morning (October 22).

Banda contested for the Democratic Party in the Kundasale electorate of the Kandy District at the Provincial Council election.

He stated that despite getting the highest number of preferential votes in the Central Province for the Democratic Party he was moved to fifth place in the preferential list. Herath Banda protested outside the Democratic Party office following the incident last month but claimed that neither the party leader nor the party deputy secretary had acknowledged his grievance.

He was removed from the Democratic Party as well as his post as Kundasale organizer for the party.
