Political career
Lokubandara first entered parliament in 1977 representing the United National Party (UNP), defeating Mr. Dissanayake former Cabinet Minister's son-in-law of Health W. P. G. Ariyadasa who did n't contest 1977 general election. He was initially appointed to the non-cabinet post of Minister of Indigenous Medicine. In 1989, Lokubandara was appointed a Cabinet Minister when he was given the Ministries of Cultural Affairs, Education and Media by President Ranasinghe Premadasa.
With the defeat of the UNP in the general elections of 1994, Lokubandara became the Chief Opposition Whip of the parliament. He held this position until 2001.
