List of prominent members of the Lanka Sama Samaja Party

Members of the Lanka Sama Samaja Party (LSSP), a marxist, trotskyist, socialist party in Sri Lanka. Some of the people listed below may only briefly have been in the LSSP.

A large proportion of the leadership of the Left in Sri Lanka started their political lives in the LSSP. This is even true of the political right; for example, Esmond Wickremesinghe (the father of Ranil Wickremasinghe) was a leading member of the party -- before marrying the daughter of the wealthy press baron D.R Wijewardena and being appointed editor-in-chief of Lake House.
