J.R’s grandson joins SLFP

The grandson of the country’s first Executive President J.R. Jayawardena, Pradeep Jayawardena has decided to enter politics.

Convening a media briefing in Colombo yesterday (19), he said he would enter politics from the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP).

He pointed out that many issues could arise as a result of a new
Constitutional amendment and said it was a matter of concern how the UNP could do this.

He has been serving as the SLFP Gampaha District Organiser since April  28, 2016.

He was awarded this post by President Maithripala Sirisena.

He served in the foreign service prior to entering politics.
