‘SLFP will field its own candidate’

The SLFP Central Working Committee has unanimously decided to field a candidate of its own for the forthcoming Presidential Election, said SLFP General Secretary and Kurunegala District Parliamentarian Dayasiri Jayasekara speaking to journalists in Panduwasnuwara on Saturday.

The SLFP Central Working Committee which met on June 26 also decided to prepare a detailed report of the proposals made by both the SLFP and the SLPP during their six rounds of discussions to try and form a political alliance to contest the Presidential Election, he said.

A special committee to investigate the proposals of the SLPP too was appointed by the SLFP Working Committee, Jayasekara said.

He added that all SLFP Parliamentarians commended President Maithripala Sirisena for his bold step in introducing capital punishment for convicted drug traffickers.
