Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) member Nayana Wasalathilake was sworn in as a Member of the Parliament of Sri Lanka today (Jan 12).

Wasalathilake, a top businessman, was sworn in before Speaker of the House Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena in Parliament.

Nayana Wasalathilake fills the vacancy created due to the recent resignation of SJB MP Chaminda Wijesiri. 

Earlier this week (Jan 09), MP Wijesiri announced his decision to step down as a Member of Parliament. 

At the time, he said the Parliament needed a new mandate, adding that the public was cursing all 225 MPs, including their children, and that his children did not deserve such ill will. (NewsWire)
