SLFP with UPFA for LG elections

SLFP General Secretary Agriculture Minister Duminda Dissanayake discounted media reports that the SLFP would go it alone at the next local government elections.

He emphatically stated that the party would contest the local elections under a strong alliance with UPFA member parties and several other parties and groups.

He said the SLFP is currently having discussions with UPFA member parties on how they should face the election and all parties with whom discussions had been completed were in agreement to contest under a common front.

Dissanayake said only three main parties are affiliated to the UPFA with the SLFP at present. He said their intention was to coalesce with several other parties and groups as well to make up a wider front.
