SLFP awaits SLPP response by October 5 - Dayasiri

Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) General Secretary Parliamentarian Dayasiri Jayasekara yesterday said his party was expecting a “favourable response” from the SLPP regarding coalition possibilities by October 5.

Addressing the weekly media briefing held yesterday at the SLFP headquarters, Jayasekara said that the SLFP wants to form a coalition with the SLPP and has already made many sacrifices on this behalf.

He said the SLFP Central Committee convened on Monday under President Maithripala Sirisena and decided to take the final decision on matters concerning the presidential election at a further Central Committee meeting scheduled for October 5.

“The SLFP has not demanded anything from the SLPP. But we only made a humble request to change the symbol of the proposed coalition.We are waiting for a positive response from the SLPP in this regard,” Jayasekera said.

Responding to a question about the decision taken by the party to take disciplinary action against members who have violated party discipline, the party General Secretary said that the decision to take action against SLFPers who violated party discipline will not be changed for any reason.

“Discipline is very much important to a political party.

"The SLFP Central Committee has also decided to introduce a code of ethics,”he said.

SLFP Treasurer Lasantha Alagiyawanna said that as a responsible political party, the SLFP will not hesitate to take any decision for the betterment of the country’s future.
