The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) has named former Matara District MP Sunil Handunnetti and former Auditor General Sarachchandra Mayadunne as its nominees to Parliament via the National List.

The JVP had obtained two National List slots in the 2015 General Election.

Handunneti, who contested from the Matara District, failed to secure his seat at the election, while Mayadunne was the first name on the JVP’s National List.
